Sipping Rum Friday's
Head to Union Square Wines & Spirits for free rum tastings

Even though it's just now April, you better get prepared for May. Santa Teresa, Venezuela's oldest rum producer is going to host a free weekly tasting series at Union Square Wines & Spirits, featuring their flagship rum, Santa Teresa 1796. The tastings will be held on Friday evenings, from May 10th through May 31st. The series will feature rum on the rocks, neat and in classic cocktails and will also be paired with food items. Daniela Curiel, Brand Manager of Santa Teresa Rum says, “As an aged rum, it’s perfect for sipping or even pairing with foods like chocolate. It takes classic cocktails, from daiquiris to nightcaps, to a whole new level.  It’s also an ideal gift, with Mother’s Day and Father’s Day coming up.” Below is the itinerary for the series. See ya there!
