Frozen rum cocktails, like daiquiris or piña coladas, are a perfect way to celebrate National Rum Day on Aug. 18.
Waterfront bars like Bongo’s Beach Bar & Grille or the aptly named Rum Runners on St. Pete Beach, or Palm Pavilion on Clearwater Beach, offer a well-made drink as well as a quick escape from the sun.
No time for the beach? Stop by Marlow’s Tavern in Carrollwood and wash away your worries with the Three Hour Tour, a tiki-inspired cocktail. Or opt for one of the best mojitos in town at The Columbia Cafe on Tampa’s Riverwalk.
