I recently bumped into my friend Sam who had just returned from an island vacation and we got to talking about our favorite rums. So I am sharing my pick of the day—Rumson’s Grand Reserve Rum. Rightfully called their Crown Jewel, this is a grand sipping rum. This custom blend of aged Caribbean rums is blended and finished in, of all places, Salem Massachusetts. Don’t let that fact keep you from trying this exceptional spirit. Blender Eric Glass is truly an artist.
Try making a Periodista using Rumson’s Grand Reserve. In fact just a year ago, this was one of the signature cocktails I chose for our good friend’s Dave and Linda’s wedding in Maine. Happy Anniversary to Dave and Linda!
