I probably haven’t spoken much about booze around here (but trust- that’s changing! I have some awesome cocktail recipes coming in the future!), but here’s a fun fact: Rum is apart of my heritage, which is why I am excited to partner with Rums of Puerto Rico to talk about their new web series, Rum Times. It’s Rum Time !

My family is from Puerto Rico, and we've always joked that we have rum running through our veins rather than blood. My grandparents lived in Puerto Rico when I was younger, and every time they came to visit, my grandfather would bring cases of rum for us. Okay, this is totally making me sound like I come from a family of alcoholics, but it's a cultural thing, I swear! My parents would rarely drink the rum (they never were much into drinking), but would use it in cakes and syrups and all sorts of ways.

Flash forward over ten years, my family and I visited Puerto Rico and I was finally of legal drinking age. I made it my business to visit the Bacardi distillery and to try as many rums as possible, within reason of course. I’ve actually found myself enjoying aged rums, which have a much more powerful and deeper flavor than the clearer (and younger) rums people are accustomed to seeing and using in their mixed drinks.

The history of rum making is SO fascinating. Did you know that Puerto Rico is the Rum Capital of the world? And did you know that Puerto Rico has been distilling rum for over 450 years? And there are so many different other Puerto Rican rum brands out there besides Bacardi, such as Ron del Barrilito (which is incredibly difficult to find stateside- you’re better off getting it in Puerto Rico!), Don Q, and more.

With the web series Rum Times, you have the unique opportunity to see the country and its history in ways you may have never seen before. Rum Times imagines behind-the-scenes parties and celebrations of important achievements such as the quest for electric light, the development of motion pictures, and the invention of sports. It is easy to access and has helped me gain a deeper appreciation for the rum I drink at home. For you history buffs out there, the first episode explores the quest for electrical light and features key historical figures such as Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. I am so proud of my people and my island, and I am so glad that Rum Times is here to educate about rum.

  12. I drank a few too many rum and cokes in my college days so I can't handle too much of it, but I do love a good pina colada ;)
