This week on Facebuzzed we visit Admiral Nelson rum. Yes the people at Admiral Nelson want you to know they‚Äôre totally different than that other high ranking ship official who peddles rum. Not to mention there‚Äôs a rum called Sailor Jerry. I see a Petty Officer Jenkins‚Äô Malt Liquor in our future if we keep this up.
Since they‚Äôre cocky enough to have a name that technically outranks a captain, I shouldn‚Äôt be surprised Admiral Nelson thought it was appropriate to put their personal touch on a recent piece of American history:

Drinking rum to celebrate Raisinets. That is a special kind of alcoholism. At least wait until National Twizzler Day so you can use the Twizzlers as straws–and if you didn‚Äôt know you could do that before today then stop reading and try it right now.
