Make sure to stop by the Yolo Rum booth for a delicious Yolo Yummy, one of our favorite signature cocktails, or try Yolo Rum Aged or Yolo Rum Silver straight up!

Fermentation is an amazing process which produces flavors that are unobtainable in any other way. Flavors range from sweet to sour to umami. Entire populations have relied on fermentation as a form of preservation before refrigeration. Many cultures believe fermented foods and beverages are the key to longevity and happiness in life. Health benefits are ample and our society is embracing fermented foods more and more each and every day. The Fermentation Festival & Market is a celebration of everything fermented. Guests will have the opportunity to sample fermented foods and beverages from across the country.

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.

12th Planet In Alignment With Yolo Rum

Last week we had the chance to catch up with international superstar DJ 12th Planet, while in Denver for the Smog City Tour at the Bluebird Theater.  After the show we got his take on Yolo Rum!

12th Planet has been one of the premier American EDM acts since 2006 as one of the pioneering members of the Los Angeles dubstep scene.  He has also been a Denver favorite since the early days in his career as a Drum & Bass DJ and producer under the moniker of Infiltrata.  He’s headlined shows and festivals worldwide, including SXSW and Coachella.
You can often catch 12th Planet during one of his frequent stops at Beta Nightclub in Denver, where he maintained a residency during 2012.

Next month on Thursday March 27th 2014, he will also be one of the headlining acts at the SMOG Vs. Firepower party at Mekka Nightclub during Miami Music Week.  Featured acts will include fellow SMOG City Tour members Protohype and Antiserum along with former Denver, and current Los Angeles resident MC Dino.
