Holiday gatherings do tend to get boozy, but it doesn’t get much better than a “holiday” fully dedicated to liquor. Celebrate National Rum Day, August 16th, with some of the best rum cocktails from our favorite bars across Miami.
This Spanish gastrobar is a Coral Gables staple for tapas and churros. On August 16th, pair your meal with a Bacardi 8 Old Fashioned. Traditionally made with whiskey, Bulla will be serving up this twist on the classic cocktail in celebration of the holiday. Another National Rum Day special is the Gran Reserva Maestro Collins, a light and refreshing cocktail similar to a Gin Tom Collins, this time made with Bacardi Gran Reserva Maestro De Ron.
