It’s Rum Time! Have you ever heard the saying, "It's 5 o'clock somewhere?" Well, you'll be looking forward to happy hour with extra anticipation after checking out the new web video series created through a partnership between Rums of Puerto Rico and HISTORY.COM! Rum Times is an educational and inspirational web series that explores world history through the eyes of Puerto Rico rum. The Rum Times series is presented through the angle that since Puerto Rico has been creating my favorite spirit for more than 450 years, it has probably been at most historical events throughout history.
I mean, can you imagine a time before mojitos? I can't. I don't want to.
Rum Times imagines behind-the-scenes parties and celebrations of important achievements such as the quest for electric light, the development of motion pictures, and the invention of sports. It’s an exciting way experience Puerto Rico and its unique rum like you never have before...unless of course, you have a time machine.
Did you know that the lovely country of Puerto Rico has been distilling rum for over 450 years? Puerto Rico is the Rum Capital of the World!
It is so easy to access the Rum Times, and you'll learn more than you could ever imagine! I've learned so much that I am confident that I will now be drinking the best rum ever, and I am pretty sure that once you watch Rum Times, you'll be chanting It’s Rum Time too!
The first episode of Rum Times explores the quest for electric light and historical features, including important historical figures like Thomas Alva Edison and Nikola Tesla!

I love the drink mojitos because they are so refreshing! I did not know that Puerto Rico is the Rum capital of the world distilling rum for over 450 years! WOW!

I got very, absurdly drunk on rum once and swore it off. Maybe some day I will give it another chance, but not today 😉

Well, that was pretty cool! I already know that rum is delicious, but I didn't know any of the history behind it. Thanks!
What a fun little series! My favorite way to use rum is in a rum cake, with rum glaze on top.
Wow did not know that they have been distilling rum for over 450 years, that is quite a long time. Awesome video too!

I am Puerto Rican so yes I am aware that Puerto Rico is the Rum Capital of the World! When I visited Barbados someone there told me they are and I nearly spewed my drink laughing!
When I do have drinks, I like mixed drinks with rum. I can't wait for the next rum episode!
Sometimes I like to have a rum and coke, but not very often. This was a fun episode. Cant' wait to see the next one.
Since I don't drink alcohol, my rum knowledge is pretty much nonexistent. I have a lot to learn!
I am not a drinker, but my husband loves a good rum. He usually mixes his with Coke though.
What a fun video! Now I'm craving some rum....yum!
My hubby loves mojitos, it's actually his favorite drink. I can get a little tipsy from the rum since it's so strong, so I let him do the rum drinking.
Loved the video! I am not a big rum drinker but I have always wanted to try a mojito, they always looks so refreshing.
My favourite drink ever is a mojito! I loved watching this video.
I like any drink that has rum. Don't drink much anymore, but do enjoy a rum mix now and then.
I make Daiquiri's. I prefer rum to tequila so no margarita's in this house.
I could go for a drink right about now. i'm actually waiting for some wine to be delivered.
The hubby loves rum and coke. I could use that nice weather too!
I am from Jamaica where we put rum in everything. Lol. And it is the strongest rum ever

Love that picture of the drink on the beach....making me wish I was in the sun right now!
A mojito and some beach time sounds amazing right now! Who knew that I was drinking poor rum before!
I am Puerto Rican and just started drinking Rum. I always felt it was too strong and flavored for my palate but these days I'm adding it to everything
Oh my gosh. What I wouldn't do to be on the beach with a mojito. Instead, tomorrow, in record low temperatures and snow...we will be moving. LOL I will need a drink after that!
I have tried rum before but it's been a long, long time now. This is my first hearing about the series. 🙂
