Vodka, tequila, and gin, move aside — it’s rum’s time to shine. Whether you prefer white, gold, dark, or a blend of each, rum cocktails not only give serious island vibes, they are also a incredibly satisfying.

Either way, there is a rum drink for everyone in the OC to enjoy on National Rum Day, August 16th.
