Not only does today mark the middle of August, it’s also National Rum Day! Well, whether or not you knew, why not think about celebrating? Here are four options for you:
Here’s the first rum drink in the foreground, and peach salsa with chips in the background!
1) Last night we played with this one: it’s super simple and includes three of my favorite ingredients:
- Fresh lime quarters (3!)
- Fresh orange juice
- Fresh pineapple juice (okay—this is harder to come by, but so worth it!)
Muddle the lime quarters in a bar glass, add about 1 1/2 ounces of light rum, a splash each of fresh orange and pineapple juice, some ice, shake, and serve! As always, you can adjust the juices (and rum!) depending on your personal taste!

2) Mojito, mojito, mojito!
I wrote about this for Small Bites, back in March, but included it originally in my book, Mambo Mixers:
3) Dominica Punch!
This one comes from my book, Calypso Coolers—and I wrote about it last April, here on Small Bites!
4) Papaya Daiquiri
Here’s another from Calypso Coolers—and I wrote about this one way back in July, right here, too!
Would love to hear about YOUR celebrations—and, of course, I hope to see you TOMORROW at 10 am at the Hastings Farmers’ Market—to support fellow Small Bites Blogger Maria Reina, and me, as we battle it out over peaches (or, I should say, with peaches?!)!
¡Buen provecho! ENJOY!
