Wherever you are, beat the summer heat by celebrating National Rum Day on August 16.
Crank up some island tunes, fire up the grill and invite your friends over for a night of rum revelation and celebration! As soon as they walk in the door, hand them an awesome rum cocktail and get the party started.
The following rum cocktails were provided to me by the folks at Brugal Rum (but no, they didn't give me any free booze to post the recipes). Enjoy National Rum Day!
