I can’t think of a tastier way to make it through mid February than with an island favorite – rum. The Rum Babalu makes for the perfect after-work happy hour, combining the sweet flavor of maple syrup with rum, ginger beer, lime juice and bitters. Round up your friends and open that tiki bar for this mouth-watering, signature cocktail.
