Making the most out of “National Rum Day”!

This Thursday will be a special “Thirsty Thursday” because it will mark “National Rum Day”! Yes, a day to celebrate the liquor that can spice up a variety of adult drinks. To get you geared up and ready for the day that highlights the popular pool-side beverage, here are a few ways to get your share of rum!

As always, drink responsibly!


Mojitos are great for those summer beach days, whether you’re lounging with your toes in the sand or just hanging out by the pool. Consisting of white rum, sugar, and lime, you can cool off during any hot summer day with this drink.


What’s great about this beverage is that it can be made in a variety of flavors, from strawberry to banana to orange. Also made with sugar, this can sweeten up any beach vacation.

Pina Colada

We’ve all heard the song, but the drink is just as popular. This pineapple-based drink is a favorite at bars around the world, but you don’t have to be at a bar to enjoy this sweet frozen concoction. If you have light or gold rum, coconut milk, and fresh pineapple juice, you can enjoy it right in your own home!
