Break out the party hats because tomorrow is National Rum Day. Here’s the drink that we’re celebrating with.
Tomorrow is National Rum Day and we’re sure that you are planning a big party to celebrate the occasion, right? This year, instead of working behind the bar or in the kitchen, take a simpler approach by batching pitcher cocktails ahead of time.
Here is a unique pitcher drink recipe from our friends at Brugal Extra Dry Rum, a cask-aged white rum that eschews the typical sweet profile associated with rums, for a drier style. So whip up a batch of these crowd-pleasers, kick back and make it the best Rum Day ever. Happy Holiday!!
