#YoloRum | Fan Submitted Photo 10/3/14

For this weeks user submitted photo we turn our attention over to Facebook!  In this week’s edition we shout out our friend Leann!  Leann took the opportunity to share with her friends some of her favorite things in the world, and her love for her city.  In her post she reveals that some of her favorite things include Yolo Rum, Ks107.5, and Denver, Colorado!  Well we can’t argue with that combination!  It’s no secret that award winning Yolo Rum is one of our favorite things in the world too!  It should also come as no surprise that Yolo Rum’s hometown of Denver also ranks near the top of some of our favorite places!  And what would Denver be without KS107.5?!  Ks107.5 is not only home to Denver’s top morning radio show with Larry Ulibarri, Kathie J, Kendall B, and Producer Wign’z, but it’s the home of Denver’s top radio personality, and Yolo Rum family member, the aforementioned Larry Ulibarri!  It’s worth mentioning that KS107.5 is more than just a station with a great morning show, it’s also home to a whole host of some of Denver’s other top radio personalities including Tony V, Ya Girl Cedes, DJ Chonz and Buhrm Gotti.  Not only that, but KS107.5 is also the most recent recipient of the prestigious 2014 NAB Marconi Award, celebrating station excellence and performance in many different categories and criteria.
So all of that being said, here is our user submitted shutout to our Facebook friend Leann!  Here’s to being blessed with some of the best things in the world, right here in our own backyard!  And here’s to having the ability to recognize a good thing when you see it, and appreciating perfection when you taste it!  Thank you Leann!

For this weeks #YoloRum fan submitted photo, we recognize a beautiful submission showing off Yolo Rum in a stunning cityscape in our hometown of Denver, Colorado!  In this edition, we go high above the city streets to a sun-filled roof-top patio to enjoy that inner city life.  Denver is already known as the Mile High City, and with the help of our fan submitted photo and Yolo Rum, we get a little bit higher still to soak up some sunshine.  So here is our user submitted shout-out to IG:_mister_sun_!  Thanks for the support!  Thanks for the awesome picture!  And thanks for making Yolo Rum a part of your sun filled afternoon on the rooftop patio!  Cheers!

For this weeks user submitted photo, we rewind once again to a year ago for the KS107.5 All-Stars Concert from 2013.  In this edition we shine the spotlight on a fan and an ally that has been a friend of Yolo Rum ever since!  It all started from a random chance encounter on Instagram.
Shortly before the 2013 All-Stars show, we ran a contest where we encouraged Yolo Rum fans to hashtag pictures of themselves enjoying Yolo Rum, with #yolorum, for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the concert.  And this would be our initial contact with Jeffrey the Mole.

As luck would have it, Jeffrey the Mole’s picture was randomly selected as the winning entry, so we quickly contacted him to inform him of his victory.  Upon contacting him, he notified us that due to prior obligations it would be difficult, if not impossible to make it to the show.  However, not being one to pass on an amazing hip-hop line-up (that included Ice Cube, Ludacris, E-40, Eve and Too Short), Jeffrey the Mole realized that “You Only Live Once”, and he might not get this opportunity again.  So after competing in a snowboard competition earlier that day in Keystone, Jeffrey the Mole and his wingman Steve made their way to Denver for a night they would not soon forget.

Let’s just say we’ve all been friends ever since!

I did it all 4 the @yolorum. Getchyo self sum girl

So here’s to you, as a Yolo Rum fan, Instagram contest winner, hip-hop connoisseur, and a sick snowboarder to boot!  This weeks “Fan Submitted” shout out goes to IG:@jeffrey_the_mole, for being a friend of Yolo Rum, and for embracing that YOLO moment when given the opportunity!

Yummy! The Yolo Rum Summertime Signature Drink!

Yolo Yummy with Yolo Rum Aged Jones Cream Soda and Orange Juice
Introducing the drink that will make you the most popular person at your next BBQ!  The Yolo Yummy!  The drink is easy to make, and sure to delight the taste buds of anyone that has the luxury of coming into contact with this delicious beverage!  Often compared with an “Orange Dream Soda” or a “Creamsicle”, a couple sips of this drink will have you reminiscing about summertime bike rides, twilight games of neighborhood tag, and chasing down the ice cream man.
Ingedients:
–  2 oz Yolo Rum Aged
–  5 oz Jones Cream Soda
–  Splash Orange Juice
To make this summertime libation, all that you’re going to need is some Yolo Rum Aged, Jones Cream Soda, and some Orange Juice.  To mix, take a nice tall pint glass filled with ice, add 2 ounces of Yolo Rum Aged, add 5 ounces of Jones Cream Soda, and finally a splash of Orange Juice.  Stir the ingredients up, sip, and enjoy!  Easy enough!  And to think, that’s all it took to make you the popular one.  If only life were always this easy.  And while we can pretty much guarantee that you will love this drink, and be magically whisked away back to your childhood.  We can’t guarantee that you won’t get cooties from the cute neighbor across the street.

You Only Live Once…
