Cocktail O’Clock: National Rum Day
August 16th is Nacional Dia Del Ron, which roughly translates to: “no better time than the middle of August to take off work early and celebrate a made-up drinking holiday.” Works for us! Start your National Rum Day with this Panamanian rum cocktail.
The Panamanian Soother:
(Makes 8-10 drinks)
1 1/2 cups Ron Abuelo Añejo
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1 oz agave nectar
1 pack blueberries
12 sage leaves
2 bottles ginger beer (Barritts’s or Regatta)
Directions: In large pitcher, muddle the berries and thyme together. Then add remaining ingredients with ice and stir very well.
