Mount Gay Rum ad to celebrate National Rum DayBetcha you didn't know that the month of August is National Rum month, or that today is National Rum Day.
No? Me either.
Now if I were a rum drinker, I would have known that. Or maybe I would be a rum connoisseur, and not need a special day to fulfill my rum craving.
I don't get it that an excuse is actually needed to booze away for a day, or for an entire month for that matter, but to each his/her own.
I wonder how many fetes and cruises are planned for today.
The first time I heard of a Booze Cruise was a few years ago, when I heard my daughter and her friends headed out to sail on a catamaran booze cruise.
As for me, you may already know that I'm not a drinker, I eat my liquor instead. Christmastime finds me making my famous light headed rum cake, and mixing up a good strong batch of Bailey's (made with white rum and not the usual whiskey).
Naturally our local rum producers (Mount Gay Rum in this instance) are celebrating the day in fine style.
For those of you that love rum, celebrate your day, but please don't overdo it.
