Stolen Rum

Camping With Stolen Rum by Kelly Garcia

OOoooo lordy, I love a dang cocktail. I used to go for wine or whiskey on the rocks only, but for the past two years, I've been on a solid experimental beverage kick. My good pal, Reuben Bidez, is always making my next favorite cocktail, so I'm always trying to pick up tips and tricks from him. 

I've never really ventured too far into the world of rum. I blame my senior year cruise to the Caribbean. With that regrettable blur more than a decade behind me, i've been a little braver. I had Reu help me whip up a few different cocktails using Stolen Smoked Rum one night. It has a interesting smokey and mildly chocolate taste, so we experimented with two fruity cocktails and one smokey. I enjoyed all of them!   

Eager to relax the week off and recreate what I just learned, I packed a bag, and Seth and I headed away from the noise of the city. Of course he brought his guitar. He even brought his guitar on our Honeymoon. He played us some tunes and I shook up some yummy drinks.  If you want to give this smokey rum a shot, they have a few starter recipes at

I'm curious, do you like rum? if so, please share some recipes with me! I'm always looking for something new to whip up.
