How to Make a Rum Sour in the Mountains

The story goes that with one sip of rum, our guest was hooked. No spirit would have quite the same effect on her, ever.  Her life took many twists and turns with rum on the side lines, until one day she knew it was time to make her own.

Karen Hoskin wasn’t going to let the little fact that she lived in the mountains of Colorado stop her. She has proved all the naysayers, more than wrong, especially after her Montanya Rum won Best Rum in the World at the World Rum Awards. After ten years, she continues to relive that first moment with rum over and over again.

Try a few of the Montanya Rum recipes: the Rum Sour & the Hottanya, their take on the classic Hot Buttered Rum!
