August 16 is National Rum Day and at Tom’s Urban guests can choose from a variety of rum concoctions such as the Blackbeard, Tom’s Collins and the Rockabilly Juice Punchbowl, all of which are guaranteed to quench your rum thirst (Pictured: Tom’s Collins).
- Tom’s Collins (Bacardi rum, cucumber, mint, Tom’s lemon sour) – Cocktail historian David Wondrich discovered the Tom’s Collins, dating it back to the mid-1800s.
- Blackbeard (Captain Morgan Spiced Rum and house-made blackberry ginger ale with fresh blackberries) – Inspired by the ferocity of Blackbeard, who would light fuses under his hat to scare the crap out of people he defeated. What would Blackbeard have ordered? Well, probably straight rum, but his second choice would be the drink of his namesake.
