It’s Thirsty Thursday, Tales of the Cocktail is going on in New Orleans and I’m not there so I’m going to celebrate by talking about rum!
This image, now available as a high resolution download on the Wallpapers page, was created when I happened to stumble upon it on a public domain page. Variations of the quote haven been popping up all over the place so I came up with my own variation, found what I thought was the best spot to place it, slapped my logo on it and here you go. Feel free to use the image in whatever way you want – it’s in the public domain so have at it!
This evening, however, is when the real celebration begins as I’ll be releasing my latest cocktail recipe featuring a rum that as of last week, wasn’t available at any bar in my home state. Sometimes knowing people in the biz has its benefits. No, it doesn’t feature Mount Gay – Plantation Rum is the star of tonight’s article and I’ll be getting my Stiggins’ Fancy on in a cocktail that includes spices and fruit.
I guess that’s one benefit of having absolutely zero rum companies respond in the positive to my emails inquiring about sponsoring the blog – you’re beholden to no one. Ahhhh, the life of a blogger.
