Keep to the CODE

13450055_10210144400593239_2029506157522077580_nA coupla free spirited guys (with the best names ever: Don Ron Brown and Johnny Ringo) joined forces three years ago to do more than just bike to bars and kiteboard. No, this pair of pirates had more on their mind… or should we say, in their cup?

Ringo and Don have introduced an incredibly smooth, handcrafted rum that is unlike anything you’ve ever tried. And now, finally, you can get a bottle at ABC Fine Wine & Spirits.

Presenting a spirit that needs no introduction to rum heads all over Florida, Code Rum’s Key Lime Rum.

This small batch spirit is distilled in Riviera Beach, Florida. With a smooth body and a note of sweetness from the sugarcane, the evident Key lime flavor knocks this rum out of the park. It is the spirit you need for boat drinks, cocktails and smooth sailing. Try this in margaritas, daiquiris, martinis and a blue mojito:

2 oz Code Key Lime Rum
1 1/2 tsp Sugar
7 Large Mint Leaves
1/2 Lime (cut into wedges)
3 oz Lemon-Lime Soda
1 oz Club Soda
1 oz Blue Curacao

Muddle mint, sugar and lime in a glass. Fill the glass with ice. Pour Code Key Lime Rum over ice. Add both sodas. Stir, float the blue curacao on top, then garnish however your heart desires. We suggest a sprig of mint and a lime wedge.

Code Spiced
Pineapple Juice
Splash of Grenadine

Combine ingredients in a highball glass over ice.

However you sip your rum, give Code Rum a try this summer. It’s sure to bring out your inner pirate… or beach bum… or beach bummin’ pirate.

Huzzah!
