While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.

If you like piña coladas, August 16 is certainly a day worth breaking out the Tiki mugs for. It's National Rum Day - just another manic rum day, one might say.

The liquor, distilled from fermented sugar cane products like molasses, is certainly a global commodity, but its spirit remains synonymous to the Caribbean.

Whether you opt for the light, dark, gold or spiced variety, time flies when you're having rum.
