1881 Series: On the Rocks
Rum – The World’s First Spirit

January 24, 2022 | 6 p.m.-7 p.m. ET
Online - Zoom

Originating in the West Indies in the 17th century, rum is considered the world's oldest spirit. Made from sugar cane, the spirit can be found in many iterations at your local liquor store—and your favorite pirate movies. 

In this interactive session, we'll learn about the rich history of rum—including its various styles and varieties—and how to craft three distinct rum-based cocktails that will make you think of a warm, tropical beach.

Join mixologist Jessica Rapuano ’08 (CLAS) and your host Josh Proulx ’05 (CLAS) from UConn’s Office of Alumni Relations, as they discuss and craft some tasty beverages.

Here are your Cocktails:
