Pirates, conquerors, explorers… the list goes on, we’ve all heard the phrase: “ho ho ho and a bottle of Rum”? It brings to mind images of men sailing ferocious seas, battling fearsome battles, exploring new lands, killing and stealing from one another… it’s all a big part of the dramatic idea of the history of Rum!
But that’s just what it is, history. Now days ladies all over the world are sitting down to a good Rum Cocktail for a catch up on the gossip with the girls. Funny thing is half of them are probably unaware that what they are drinking is actually rum!
The number of female rum drinkers seems to be increasing of late* (*from my personal observations!), but I’m not sure if anyone has done a study into it!
Hang five while I check…
…ok I’m back!
Well not only were there no results for “increase in female rum consumption” there wasn’t even any Google results for “female rum drinkers”!! It’s a conspiracy! That being the case I’m taking it upon myself to get some facts on the number of women rum drinkers!
I think I’ll set up an “I’m a female rum drinker and proud of it” section this blog for all the lady rum drinkers out there – where they can do what they do best – gossip about their favorite rum drinks / cocktails… I’ll keep you updated!
If you can’t wait until I set up the poll (these things take a bit of time to get the right answers) just subscribe to the blog and then you’ll be alerted when its time to join up and mingle with your fellow (err… other lady?) rum drinkers!
Let’s get the word out there – ladies DO drink rum! Ladies feel free to comment and let me know what your favourite rum drink is!
