3 LDPR Approved Ways To Celebrate National Rum Day

In honor of National Rum Day, we are celebrating with local recipes and rum flights from our favorite island destinations. Cheers! 🍹

The Royal Mojito at Royal Isabela, A Destination Hotel in Puerto Rico is a must. Made with the fresh flavor of the organic limes and mint, grown on the sprawling resort’s 426-acre farm, what’s not to love?


4 lime wedges
5 mint leaves
1 ounce sugar syrup
1.5 ounces of Puerto Rican White Rum (Royal Isabela prefers Don Q Cristal)
Lemon-lime soda
Mint sprig for garnish


Place two lime wedges in a highball glass and use a muddler to crush the lime to release the lime juice. Add sugar syrup and two mint leaves (rub leaves in your hands to release the mint oils). Do not strain. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice, alternating with remaining lime wedges and mint. Pour rum over ice, fill glass with lemon-lime soda, and then stir. Garnish with mint sprig and enjoy.

The Antigua Smile at Curtain Bluff is sure to make you smile. Indulge with this fruity cocktail relaxing beneath the palm trees poolside or  taking in the ocean breeze at The Seagrape.


1.5 ounces of Dark Rum
1 ounces of Crème de Banana
1.5 ounces of Pineapple Juice
0.5 ounces of Sour Mix


Shake all ingredients together. Garnish with pineapple & mango wedge.


A stay at Marigot Bay Resort and Marina  isn’t complete without one of their bespoke and personalized rum tastings at The Rum Cave.

For the ultimate guide to all things rum, guests have the opportunity to learn from The Rum Cave Bar’s rum connoisseurs and taste the different blends of aged rums produced right in Saint Lucia. Located nearby the resort, guests can tour the island’s sole rum distillery and sample some of the world’s best rum.
