I never really thought about it but I can see how rum would be be our national drink......lol
Macon: "Cricket is the national sport, traffic drives on the left and the literacy rate is the highest in the Caribbean (and higher than the United States). Barbados is the most English of all the Caribbean islands, except that rum, not tea, is the national drink.
Among new features awaiting travelers is the recently reopened Harrison's Cave, the island's most popular attraction; the spruced-up Casuarina Beach Resort, winding up a $30 million expansion; and a renovated Oistins Fish Market, site of a famous weekend fish fry.
