Rum has humble origins: it was sugar plantation slaves who first discovered molasses could be fermented, then distilled, for a pleasant tasting (and feeling) drink. But these days, rum has managed to join the ranks of tequila and gin as a diverse, wide-ranging spirit that's managed to play a role in everything from Caribbean staples to Polynesian tiki drinks.
