National Drink of the Land of Awe

Rum Running Away

To celebrate the fact that Columbus discovered the new world, it was only fitting to kick off the holiday weekend with a truly worldly cocktail made from a truly historic liquor.

Today we celebrate NATIONAL RUM DAY!

Any day that celebrates any alcohol is generally a good day in my books, but the fact that it’s a celebration of all things rum, makes it so much more perfect! I’ll just overlook the fact that it isn’t technically rum day….

Today we salute all things Rummy!

Here’s a super easy recipe for the simple and delectable – Rum Runner!

1 oz Spiced Rum
0.25 oz Blackberry Liqueur
0.25 oz Creme de Banana (or throw in a fresh banana instead)
1 oz of  Orange Juice
Splash of Pineapple Juice
Cup of crushed Ice

Add Spiced Rum, blackberry liqueur, crème de banana liqueur, orange juice, pineapple juice and crushed ice in a blender. Blend, pour into glass and top with a fresh slice of pineapple!

 You could throw in some Grenadian (which I don’t like) or Passionfruit Cordial (my favorite).
Please drink responsibly and make sure you drink with a friend. the only thing worst than drinking alone is laying on a sunny, sandy beach, rum runner in hand and when the glass is empty you notice you are all alone……
No one likes getting up for a refill. Just bring along the entire pitcher!
