I’m amazed at the fact that I always seems to remember a national liquor holiday the day after that holiday takes place 🙁 So I’m sure you all will be seeing a lot more Happy Belated [Insert Type Of Liquor Here] Day posts on here. The latest liquor holiday was National Rum Day which was celebrated yesterday (August 16). Rum is hands down one of my favorite liquors so I’m a little bummed about missing that holiday although I’ll probably whip up a rum cocktail or two today for a little belated celebration. If you too plan on getting your National Rum Day celebration on a day late like me then be sure to check out this unique drink recipe from the ultra-premium Zacapa Rum.
