While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Start your engines for some rum-running - August 16 is National Rum Day!
Quench your thirst and partake in this sweet Caribbean spirit today. Made by distilling the byproducts of molasses and sugarcane, rum ends up the strong, silent type on the scale of alcoholic beverages.
You can take a swig of the grog right from the bottle or enjoy a little rum in a piña colada (perhaps while getting caught in the rain), Mojito, daiquiri, Mai Tai or a fruity punch. You could even enjoy a dash of the good stuff in your Bananas Foster or other recipes with a bit of an edge.
At the end of the day, you may be asking, "But why is the rum gone?!?"
