The summer is the best time of year to experience rum-based cocktails like the piña colada, mojito, and daiquiri. Since rum is made from sugar cane, it blends well with the sweet, fruity, and refreshing ingredients we crave in the summer. It’s the spirit of the Caribbean for a reason, you know. So this National Piña Colada Day (July 10th), National Mojito Day (July 11th), and National Daiquiri Day (July 19th), bring the taste of the Caribbean to your home with three BACARDÍ Rum cocktails.
