Rougaroux Sugarshine Rum: T.G.I.F. Cocktail Recipes for March 27

Rougaroux Sugarshine Rum (101 Proof) is an award-winning spirit from the land of bayous and urban legend, Louisiana.  In fact the Rougaroux (Roo ga roo), is a being who haunts Southern Louisiana and this is rum of mention.  The rum is characterized by the presence of a bold molasses and a lingering sweetness, due to the Louisiana-grown sugarcane.

This handcrafted spirit is taken from farm to bottle and cane to cocktail.  It's not a typical rum.  You might even be able to see through time after consuming it!  Good times.
