Rum Babalu

Yikes!  It’s National Rum Day!  I was shutting down my computer for the evening and off to bed when the internet caught my eye and informed me it was National Rum Day so of course, I had to make a rum drink in honor of the day!

It was…..ok.  I just had regular rum instead of Kirk and Sweeney 12 year rum so maybe that’s why it tasted off.  Haha.  Or maybe I’m just not a big Rum drinker.  Either way, here is the recipe.
