World Rum Day takes place on Saturday July 10th. It’s a day designed to bring rum-lovers, bars and distilleries together to celebrate the popular drink. Rum is one of the worlds most popular and versatile spirit that forms the foundation for many great cocktails, from mojito’s to piña colada and comes in many different variations including un-aged rums that are typically light, aged rums that pack more flavors, those with a sugar-cane base, spicy rum, tropical or “funky” rum which comes from the Caribbean island of Jamaica and richer styles that can be drunk neat or poured over dessert.
As days in the Magic City grow longer and warmer, our tastes tend toward lighter, fresher dishes that bring a bright bouquet of flavors and textures. There's no shortage of spring bounty in South Florida, and a bevy of restaurants will be opened their doors to visitors, boasting fresh ingredients in every course, from intriguing entrées to decadent desserts.
