Everything you need to know about Rum Month

Here at DrinkUp, we’ve been said to love a week. So obviously – how could we resist a whole MONTH!

As three of the most iconic rum cocktails happen to have their special days during July, we thought why not join the whole thing up into one huge celebration of all things rum, hand-in-hand with BACARDÍ. All month long there’ll be specially created cocktails, parties, pop-ups, take-overs, terraces, taxi tours and more… 


On the 10th July – it’s Piña Colada Day! Stop it! 
Whether it’s a full on Coco Disco at Mahiki or re-imagined Coladas in a go-cup from the award winning Artesian – this cult classic cocktail deserves to be celebrated long into the night… 

Then hot on the heels – we’re straight into Mojito Day on 11th July. 
Not even a day’s respite! But – well, Mojitos are officially Britain’s favourite cocktail so – we applaud your dedication to the cause. 
There’s a block party down at Rum Kitchen Brixton with a Mojito Soundsystem, a chance to mess about and make Mojitos your own way at Callooh Callay or pick up a copy of the Mojito Map and taste London Cocktail Club’s twists on the classic in each of their fantastic venues… 


And then… on 19th July – it’s Daiquiri Day!
Did you know that the original recipe for the Daiquiri back in 1898, clearly states to use BACARDÍ Carta Blanca rum in the mix? Nice. We know what we’ll be ordering on the 19th. 

Back for a second year – we’re teaming up with BACARDÍ to run our taxi tours of East London to celebrate the Daiquiri. This time there’s four stops around some of London’s most iconic bars to taste each venues interpretation of the classic recipe. Sager and Wilde will also be firing up the terrace barbeque, and the black taxis are hop on hop off – whisking you to Cocktail Trading Company, Discount Suit Company and Super Lyan! Swish. 

Rum Month runs from 02 July – 31 July. 
Look out for the Rum Month tag on our event listings to plan your evenings.
