It’s Rum Time! Raise A Glass to History

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rums of Puerto Rico . All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s Rum Time! I love history, and I love rum, so I’m pretty excited about the new web series, “Rum Times,” by Rums of Puerto Rico and History.com! 

The series explores some of the biggest achievements in history, such as the invention of the lightbulb and the camera, and the great parties that followed! Really though, can you imagine how epic those parties must’ve been? The first time EVER being able to use a lightbulb or take a picture?!

Puerto Rico has been making rum for over 450 years, and because of it, is considered the Rum Capital of the World. Since Puerto Rico’s rum has been around so long, chances are, there was quite a bit of rum flowing at these historical achievement parties as well. Although our parties today are quite different from those that happened centuries ago, it’s pretty cool to think that despite all this time, we’re still drinking the same delicious Puerto Rican rum. 
Another cool piece of the Rum Times site, is that cocktail recipes specific to each achievement are posted, along with a playlist of related jams that you could spin at a current party to celebrate the achievement, which would be pretty fun! 
Each week a new clip on a historical moment will be posted, so be sure to head back to check it out! Based on all of the cocktail recipes posted, it looks like there’s some pretty exciting ones coming up!

Watch the first installment of Rum Times below!

    Rum is my absolute favorite. I like to drink it with Sprite or Ginger Ale. The flavored rums are even better. I have a black cherry one I am drinking now mixed in ginger ale. So freaking good…and dangerous…. :)

  • That sounds delicious! I've done the traditional rum and coke or my favorite coconut rum with grenadine and pineapple juice, but your combo is new to me. I'll have to try that next time!
