We have found ourselves with another one of those "foodie holidays" to celebrate and today the occasion is National Rum Day. There are many ways to mark the day. While you may already be headed to the bar to pull out the blender for some Strawberry Daiquiris or pour yourself a simple Rum and Coke, I urge you to sit down and explore more ways you can enjoy that favorite rum you've been saving for the perfect occasion.

- Find a New Rum Cocktail - Spice up you rum palate with a drink you haven't tried before like a Third Rail or a Fresh Squeeze. Also, reintroduce yourself to a classic or two such as a Hemingway Daiquiri or the favorite Dark & Stormy.
- Treat Yourself to a New Premium Rum - Even at the highest end of the rum category it is one of the most reasonably priced spirits available. Today you could think about running to the liquor store, looking up on the top shelf of the rum section and pulling down a nice anejo or a luxury white. Your Anejo Highball will thank you.
- Reading for Rummies - If finding a new book to read is your style, the one that you have to pick up because it is the authority on rum and its history is Wayne Curtis' And a Bottle of Rum.
- Don't Forget the Rum in Your Food - Rum is one of the best liquors for cooking, especially on the grill or for making yummy desserts. Check out this Caribbean Lobster with Rum-Jerk Butter or Rum Jerk Chicken and Avocado Salad and for dessert a delicious Rum Baba or a Bacardi Rum Cake. You can also mix the two - dessert meets the grill - with these Grilled Rum and Pineapple Kebabs.
