Whether I’m on vacation or relaxing by the poolside, rum cocktails just seem appropriate for warm-weather drinking. In fact, fruity rum cocktails like Pina Colada and the Mojito are a few of my personal favorites.
The first drink I ever ordered at the bar was a Mojito, and ten years later it’s still my go-to drink for cooling down and relaxing with friends. I love rum, yet I know little about its origin. So today I wanted to introduce to you a cool new web series called Rum Times. The web series was created in partnership by Rums of Puerto Rico and HISTORY.com exploring world history through the eyes of Puerto Rican Rum.
Puerto Rico is known for its beautiful beaches, but it’s also known for being the Rum Capital of the World. It’s been distilling rum for 450 years and the largest rum distillery in the the world is the Bacardi Distillery located in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
By watching Rum Times, you’ll have the unique opportunity to see the country and its history in ways never seen before, from the eyes of a local luxury that has been around for centuries.
The first episode of the web series explores the quest for electric light and historical features including key features such as Thomas Alva Edison and Nikola Tesla. Watch below!
I learned so much from watching this episode especially how Puerto Rican rum was around to celebrate life changing historical events like the light bulb. So for 450 years of parties that help celebrate many historical milestones throughout history, Puerto Rican rum was there. That’s pretty cool!
The next time I decide to have a fruity rum cocktail when I’m out with friends or celebrating a monumental moment in my life, I’ll make sure it’s one of the rums made in Puerto Rico because I want to drink nothing but the best. Like the locals, if there’s a party, “It’s Rum Time!”
