Rums of Puerto Rico Presents: Rum Times

Rums Of Puerto Rico

Great accomplishments are always made better when properly celebrated with a party. Celebrating milestones with friends & loved ones has long been a standard tradition dating back centuries in time. From graduations to weddings, a party is always icing on the cake to a truly special accomplishment.

Rums of Puerto Rico has recently teamed up with HISTORY.COM to create a brand new web series (found at It’s Rum Time). The series explores through time the various historical moments that have been worthy of an equally momentous party, as seen through the eyes of Puerto Rican Rum. Puerto Rican Rum is the best there is! Did you know Puerto Rico is hailed as the Rum Capital of the World? Rum has been distilled in Puerto Rico for more than over 450 years! 

You'll walk away with nuggets of historical information you can use to impress at the next party you attend. Like did you know that if it wasn't for Johannes Kepler we wouldn't have selfies today? That is something I learned in the second episode of the series! The web series is not all just history. You'll walk away knowing more about Puerto Rican Rum than you ever did before! Created with a viewpoint from the rum itself, you'll see a side of Puerto Rico that only a local would know, expanding your views of this gem of an island. 

Head over to to check out this new web series. Episodes one & two are already up to view now. Let me know in the comments below what your next party will be celebrating, & remember IT'S RUM TIME!

Essential, High-Quality Technology Guide

Like it or not in this modern age, technology rules our world. It makes life a lot easier in many different ways; from helping us achieve a perfect body, to monitoring our homes, technology has penetrated every facet of our lives. I can easily say that I've been a techie geek ever since I can remember, I must have been the only 6th grader I knew who kept track of his assignments on a Palm Pilot (remember those!?). 

If you're anything like me, then you have to know what the hottest gadgets of the moment are at all times. The following list is a compilation of some of the most essential, highest-quality gadgets out there. From wearables to improvements on everyday items, here are the top picks of the best of the best tech out there.


The Jawbone UP band has long been my preffered fitness tracker out there. The UP24 is the latest incarnation of Jawbone's fitness band, adding bluetooth connectivity making it even easier to talk to your smartphone. From tracking your fitness activities, logging your nutritional intake for the day to even monitoring your sleep patterns, the Jawbone UP24 Band is the best fitness band out there.

Alpine iLX-007

Ever since Apple announced its CarPlay technology, I've been obsessed with having my car's system integrate with my iPhone. Up until now, the only way you've been able to experience it first hand was purchasing a new Ferrari FF. While I still await BMW to integrate it into its line of vehicles so I can use it in my own car, the next best solution is the new Alpine iLX-007 aftermarket receiver. The iLX-007 streamlines the CarPlay features into you car, regardless of what make or model of vehicle you own. 

Sony QX100

Everywhere you look, someone is taking a picture with their smartphones to share on their various social media channels. While most smartphones take decent quality pictures, we have lost the sophistication & expertise of actual cameras to capture these memorable moments. The Sony DSCQX100 is best of both worlds, a Carl Zeiss lens on a portable lens so compact that it snaps onto the back of your smartphone (Apple or Android). With Wi-fi connectivity built into the lens, all your pictures are immediately saved onto your phone to share away with your friends.

Anova Precision Cooker

Never has cooking been so easy! You may have seen precision cookers on shows like Top Chef or Iron Chef  & imagined that you could never master the art of it, but with the Anova Precision Cooker all it takes is a pot, some water, the Anova device & your smart phone to cook perfectly prepared meals. With the tap of a few buttons, your smartphone tells the Anova what temperature & how long to cook your food, making every meal you make cooked uniformly throughout.

BRUVELO Smart, WiFI Pour-Over Coffee Brewer

You can never compare a good coffee prepared by a barista at your favorite coffee shop to the cup of joe you prepare at home. There is a reason why they have a fancy name as their job title, they know what they're doing. The BRUVELO Pour-Over Coffee Brewer takes all the hard work of making the perfect cup of coffee & puts all control in your smartphone. BRUVELO filters & manages the temperature of the water, even weighs & grinds your grounds & even adjusts to whatever flavor profile of coffee you want. For anyone wanting a fine crafted cup of coffee at home, this is the perfect must-have.
