#Cheers to #NationalRumDay With @GubbaRum #GubbaRumSilver #Cocktail #CoconutRum #Recipe

Today is National Rum Day {Yes, it really is. Google it if you don’t believe me !} So we here at SobeSavvy decided to come up with the perfect cocktail to celebrate this annual Rum holiday. We always use Gubba Rum for life’s celebrations big or small! There are a lot of choices but Gubba stands out for their quality and amazing smooth taste.

This bottle is currently on a 2nd production run, which is even smoother and richer tasting than the original !
Per their website http://gubbarum.com/,Gubba Rums are inspired by using a technique that dates back to the 1800’s. These artisanal, organic and naturally infused rums are made from pure cane and the finest fruits, spices and herbs the world has to offer.

We chose their Silver which is infused with coconut. Coconut and lime is a great marriage. See our cocktail receipe below. It is carribean in a glass { Pineapple} !

2PM Sunday Afternoon in Miami. 91 Degrees and I’m thirsty. Not for water and not for wine. I want something tropical. Something tropical with a punch. Like a Rum Punch. Lucky for me, Sunday was NATIONAL RUM PUNCH DAY ! It’s celebrated every year on the 20th of September. I needed a top shelf rum. I was in the mood for a white rum. With infused flavors of coconut. I went for my all time favorite. Gubba Rum Silver.http://gubbarum.com/rum/paradise-bay-silver/ It is an artisanal rum that they describe as “wicked smooth”. I couldn’t agree more. It’s made using pure (Agricultural) Organic Cane and Organic Coconut.

My hubby and I strolled down to the bayside park to watch sailboats. Gubba Rum joined us as we sipped on a rum punch{or two} that we made using cranberry, orange and pineapple juices. The subtle coconut flavor profile of their Silver rum really makes this cocktail exceptional. Perfect drink. Perfect Place. Gubba Rum may not be the biggest name in the Rum world but they don’t seem to strive for that. But in my opinion {and it will be yours too !} they are the best.

Get a bottle now and you too can have a “vacation in a glass” with Gubba Rum.

#SobeSavvy Reviews @GubbaRum #Rum


A few months ago I attended the Miami Rum Festival. http://atomic-temporary-51558291.wpcomstaging.com/2014/04/27/sobesavvy-shows-rumlove-at-miamirumfest-rumisfun-grandtasting-photorecap/. While tasting my way through literally dozens of rum producers I encountered few very memorable ones. Gubba Rum being one of the few that left a lasting impact on me.http://gubbarum.com Besides a great name , Gubba Rum has been the only rum to transport me back to a glorious week I spent 6 yrs ago in St Barths F.W.I. In that part of the carribean each meal ends with the proprietor setting a bottle of homemade vanilla rhum at the table as a thank you for coming.

Memories of vanilla rum in the left hand and a Cuban cigar in my right brings a grin on my face everytime. Gubba’s Gold rum is infused with natural vanilla. Their Silver rum is infused with coconut. After a particularly hard week I decided to crack the seal on the Gold. I first had it neat and sipped my way through a magazine. So smooth and so vanilla. Next up I decided to try a classic take on rum and Coke. Except this was a vanilla coke. A perfect iconic drink made all the more perfect using Gubba Rum and having it on my balcony in Miami Beach. The vanilla rum blended with a little classic Coke danced a perfect pallette harmony ballet. Can’t make it to St Barths ? Do the next best thing. Get Gubba.
