Celebrate National Rum Day with Captain Morgan White Rum

 
 

National Rum day is coming up on Saturday, August 16th (that’s this Saturday!), and I for one could not be more grateful. I mean, what better way to stew in denial that the summer’s almost over, than by day-drinking my go-to summertime liquor, amirite?

Thankfully Captain Morgan has come through in the clutch with their new White Rum. It’s slightly sweet with a hint of fruit, and its light and crisp flavor is perfect for your National Rum Day celebration, whether it be poolside, lakeside, or backyard-side.

Okay, so now that you’ve bought a bottle, what do you do with it? Luckily for all of us, Captain Morgan White Rum is super versatile and can be used in a bunch of yummy cocktails. And the best part is, you don’t even need your own personal bartender or a degree from “mixology school” to whip these up! Below are some of my faves:
