So many classic cocktails rely on rum: the piña colada, dark 'n' stormy, mai tai, and mojito, just to name a few. Rum has a rich history in America and abroad, and the sugarcane spirit can spike any season. An icy daquiri or crowd-pleasing rum punch are summertime gathering staples, while hot buttered rum offers warmth on chilly fall or winter evenings. Rum is a secret weapon for cooking and baking recipes, too, enriching a variety of desserts and meat marinades. From the trademark bananas foster sauce to a rich lamb chop glaze, the liquor pairs perfectly with fruits and baking spices. Whether you're traveling or transporting to a more tropical place or planning an al fresco cocktail party, here are our curated lists of the best rums, recipes for rum cocktails, and expertise from inspiring rum makers — plus plenty of rum destinations for spirited travel.
