However you wish to celebrate rum month, rock legend and rum aficionado Sammy Hagar has you covered. The Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer and spirits trailblazer founded his award-winning Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum in 2012 based on his deep love, knowledge and a lifetime of tasting the popular spirit. Sammy’s top-shelf rum comes in three award-winning varieties: Sammy’s Beach Bar Platinum Rum is the perfect platinum pairing in a piña colada and a masterful mix in a mojito; Sammy’s Red Head Rum, infused with macadamia nut, and is a colorful dash of delightful tropical infusion for a daiquiri; and Sammy’s Kola Spiced Rum has a flavorful, kola nut spiced flavor that is great for sipping as well as to enhance your favorite summer libation. Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum is available at a retailer near you or may be ordered on the  website.

If you like piña coladas but don’t like getting caught in the rain, stay home and show off your mixologist skills to friends and family. Sammy’s best selling cocktail book, Sammy Hagar’s Greatest Cocktail Hits, features 85 of the Red Rocker’s favorite cocktail recipes, and in honor of the season of rum, Sammy is sharing seven of his favorites to celebrate.
