Whatever happened to rum? I swear, you move from the sunny shores of the south to the blue skies of the west and all of a sudden rum punch, rum runners, rum and Coke, and even gin rummy disappear quicker than a cheap spray tan. Well, friends, fear not! I am currently sacrificing my summer for the greater good of all Denverites and sampling several rum-somethings while taking in a stunning view of Clearwater beach. I must say I am feeling nostalgic. Rum reminds me of my youth (and some people claim chocolate chip cookies remind them of childhood!?) and the tan? Free. I highly recommend this recipe – and I highly recommend a vacation to the Florida coast.
