Hurricane Irene is getting ready to hit the East Coast this weekend, so everyone has gone into full hurricane prep mode. I had to laugh at how many comments I saw from people that went something like "I went out and bought a bottle of _____ at the liquor store, so I'm good to go". Not the worst plan of action, I say.
Personally, I'm a rum girl, and luckily I've got a bottle of Zacapa premium rum ready to go. This rum is special because the part of Guatemala where it's made basically has the perfect conditions for cultivating sugar cane. It's even grown in volcanic soil, which just sounds cool. It's also unique because they use only the concentrated first press of sugar cane as a base for their rum, while most other rums use molasses as a base. And did a I mention the special aging process that has been used for 500 years? Yeah, this stuff is just really cool.
So I've got my premium dark rum and my flashlight and I'm ready to survive Irene. If you want to learn more about Zacapa rum, just click on http://bit.ly/pvKdC9 to join the Zacapa Society. You'll be very glad you did.
