Toast fathers everywhere with these refreshing summer cocktails courtesy of Tommy Bahama Rum.
Rum a part of our history, that goes back to our founding fathers. When celebrating his inauguration in 1789, founding father George Washington not only demanded that barrels of rum be present to celebrate.
From Tommy Bahama:
Made in Barbados at the legendary R. L. Seale Distillery, Tommy Bahama Rum’s two delightfully distinct flavors, Tommy Bahama White Sand and Tommy Bahama Golden Sun, are both made with the finest blackstrap molasses and the cleanest, clearest water naturally filtered through coral stone. Tommy Bahama Rums are fermented using specially selected yeast imported from the wine-growing regions of South Africa.
Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum is aged a minimum of two years in American white oak barrels. A clear, light-bodied rum, White Sand has a smooth entry and clean finish with hints of tangy, tropical fruit. Tommy Bahama Golden Sun Rum is a blend of rums aged up to ten years in American white oak barrels. A full-bodied, amber rum, Golden Sun has an elegant, fruity nose and a taste nuanced with hints of coffee, roasted nuts, and sweet pralines. Tommy Bahama Rums have no added sugar or artificial blenders.
