National Rum Month with @Phraya-Rum

Phraya – meaning, ‘of a higher rank’ was exactly my thought when I unwrapped my bottle of Rum, encased with a beautiful gold embellishment while radiating a brilliant glow. I could not wait to sample this magnificent prize I had received.  Phraya rum, crafted in Thailand takes its inspiration from the Asian elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water.  (You totally thought of the cartoon Captain Planet right? – Or was that just me? Guess it depends when you were born! hah!)

Despite the beautiful bottle that put me in a trance, Phraya shares with us a delicious cocktail recipe for all to enjoy. Before sharing though, I must comment on how deeply in love with their motto I am —

“….Happiness never decreases by being shared.” – Phraya Philosphy
