Raise a glass in Turks & Caicos Islands on National Rum Day- August 16th- as blended beverages and cocktails create a delicious island celebration. Rum is a distilled clear alcoholic beverage which is a by-product of sugar production. It can also be made directly from sugar cane juice. After the fermentation and distillation process, most rum is aged in wooden oak barrels. The spirit finds its way into citrusy mixed drinks, and cool blended summer cocktails. So much so, that rum stirs up images of sandy beaches and brightly colored umbrellas in fruity drinks. In the West Indies during the 1600s, large plantations grew sugar cane.
