Every day is a holiday! Today we can celebrate National Rum Day! And Friday is a good day to have a holiday on drinking rum! It’s an Alcoholiday!
And today, TigerTailgate makes a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! We are especially excited about the upcoming tailgating season. We have a sponsor … Bacardi !!! Yes, Bacardi Rum!
One of the great things about Princeton Football is all the incredible people we meet. During the off-season this year, we had the pleasure of meeting new members of our Princeton football family, the Northcutt’s! Scott Northcutt, #59 LB, is an incoming freshman from St. Thomas Aquinas H.S., Ft. Lauderdale, FL and the son of Scott & Anne Northcutt. I have to admit, my ears perked up when I heard that Scott Northcutt is the Sr. Vice President of Human Resources at Bacardi, Ltd. I immediately began to share with him the details of our game day tailgates AND he generously offered for Bacardi to sponsor this season! Can we all scream … “Go Tigers!”
We’ll have Bacardi Rum at our tailgates this season … along with Grey Goose Vodka, Cazadores tequila, Bombay Sapphire gin, Dewar’s scotch whiskey, & Martini vermouth & sparking wines … all which family-owned Bacardi, founded in 1862 in Cuba, has in their portfolio of premium brands making them the world’s largest, privately held spirits company.
Bacardi has been starting parties for over 150 years. We’re so excited and appreciative that they’ll be getting our Princeton TigerTailgates going at every football game this season, thanks to the Northcutt’s. Let’s enjoy their brands responsibly!
In honor of National Rum Day and TigerTailgate’s new sponsor, here’s one of TigerBuzz’s favorite rum drink recipes to get your Friday started!
