A Rum Runner is someone that transports prohibited liquors to distant shores and across borders. I’m very grateful that my local liquor store carries all of these tasty ingredients. Trash Can Punch in college had Everclear as an ingredient. Someone brought it from Arizona. That’s as close as I’ve come to being a Rum Runner. Have you crossed borders with prohibited liquor? Shhhhh, I won’t tell anyone. Please drink responsibly.
