The Space Between Film is out TODAY!
You’ve already seen SBBR in the music video for “No Worries” but check out how many cameos it has in the whole film. Let us know how many you spot and, if you dare, take a shot for every bottle spotted.
The official video for “No Worries” (Chapter 7) from The Circle’s debut studio album, Space Between, is OUT NOW!
You can watch the full video here.
Sammy sat down with Forbes for an in-depth interview and to premiere the video for “No Worries” where he explained:
“…the enlightenment moment is when you are sitting there with nothing and you realize it’s not so bad. “This is better than when I was rich and powerful and all the hassles I had and f**king people and getting f**ked and all that stuff.” When you got nothing you’re just sitting there going., “Wow, I don’t have any worries.” I came from that place so I know that it does exist. It’s not where I am today, but it was important in my story. ”

For Natl. Margarita this year, Sammys is making a Rum-a-rita, substituting rum for tequila for a lighter version of a margarita. Here’s his recipe:
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce cointreau or triple sec
1 ounce fresh orange juice
2 ounces Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum
Shake, pour straight up, with an orange slice garnish.
Or just use your favorite margarita recipe replacing tequila with high quality white rum and a splash of orange juice – no salt required. – Sammy
Yo Redheads and Rumnuts, I’ve had so many emails to our website asking where to find my rum and for great drink recipes that I asked our webmaster to re-do our website to include some of this great stuff. We want you to be able to find it and drink it in the best way possible! Check out the new site and let me know what you think!
I want everyone to enjoy this great Hawaiian nectar so I came up with this fun and easy way for you all to help spread the word about the rum!
Post a picture of you and your friends on our Facebook page enjoying one of your favorite Sammy’s Rum drinks from the recipes listed on the new website. You may also email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hope you are enjoying the rum as much as I do. Tell your friends!!!
Got to see my friend, Chef Rick Moonen, this past weekend in Vegas at the DLVEC. It was awesome to catch up and chat about everything he’s been doing. One thing that blew my mind was the aging process his mixologist team is doin’ with my rum. Very cool stuff used to create some really special drinks! More reasons for rum aficionados to love my rum! I highly recomend checking it out – more to come soon! – Sammy
Wow! What an awesome event! This place was packed to the brim and I’m so thrilled to part of this event. If you didn’t catch the news about it earlier, you can see a clip from last year here: http://www.redrocker.com/news/sammys-beach-bar-rum-nightclub-bar-show
The day started off me and Jon Taffer walkin the red carpet and getting the show rolling with the ribbon cutting ceremony! Those are some real scissors right there.
After that we hit the show room floor and man was it packed with every type of drink imaginable! In particular, our Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum exhibit was killin it! We had Master Distiller Mark Nigbur with us, as well as SBBR President, Stephen Kauffman and some lovely booth gals. My family was there with me as well, so we all had a blast together!
Towards the end of the day I cruised through Vegas a bit to a couple other conferences and got presented with the 1st VIBE Brand Ambassador award! Then I wrote a check for $5000 to an organization called C.O.R.E. (Children of Restaurant Employees) that helps kids with life threatening illnesses and their families. On Monday I also had the oppourtunity to be a keynote speaker at the American Beverage Institute.
Very happy to see the success of Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum. Our newest Red Head flavor was the talk of the show and everyone had to come get a taste espcially after checking out the SBBR Rum Woody in the lobby, that is one slick car!
It’s always an honor being rewarded for something you love doing. It’s kind of a validation that you’re doing the right thing. My restaurants and my Rum/Tequila I feel are as important as my music to the fans at least I hope, so I try and make sure they are always on that level of excellence, I try to obtain the best quality I’m capable of with my food, my beverages, & my music.
Hey folks, next time you’re in Maui swing over to the newly opened Haliimaile Distillery to check out the birthplace of Sammy’s Beach Bar Rum and get a taste of the freshest batch! Mahalo!
