Cool to get some recognition for being the first wave of what they now call "Celebrity Spirits." I'm making Sammy's Beach Bar Rum for the same reason I made my tequila - I want something of quality I can enjoy myself! I believe I have made a better product than what's out there and am pleased to see so many others enjoying it with me.
Happy Mother's Day to all you muthas out there - ha!
On a serious note I believe being a good mother is the single most important job on earth. Great mothers make great children and great children grow up to be great happy adults. Great adults can make the world a better place for all. Xoxo Sammy. Ps Kari's a great mother a special happy Mother's Day to Kari!
Last week was a crazy spring break - from Cabo to Miami to Alabama to New Orleans!
Things started out down in Cabo - hopped up on stage and jammed w/ Cabo Uno and Sammy's Baja Salt Mine is back up and running for the best margarita ever! My salt is only for the cantina to give away (ask for it in Cabo only!). Check out my recipe for the world's great margarita:
1oz fresh Tahitian lime juice
1 1/2 to 2oz Cabo Blanco or Reposado
1/2 tsp agave nectar or good raw sugar/ simple syrup- all works fine
Today is the 23rd b-day of Cabo Wabo wow I can't believe it. I wanna thank the red heads from around the world for the success of the Wabo it's all your doing. This is far beyond a dream I had and much more than a business to me. It's become a way of life for me/us. I can't wait for the b-day bash to celebrate with ya. Or we can do it in Tahoe -- 9 yrs. wow!! Get ready red heads we got some partying to do. Eeeeeeha!! Muchas gracias. Sammy
Very sad news this morning about the passing of the great Andy Johns. Having had the pleasure of seeing him do his magic drum thing with Chad and Alex on two of my favorite CDs in my musical life, I'm not sure there's anyone else that can get that sound much less entertain the troops the way ole Andy could. My love to Annette and family. A big loss to rock music.

My trip to Vegas last week was awesome! First we stopped by the Cabo Wabo for some tacos and margaritas. I ended up jammin with a country rock band that rocked 2 female fiddle players - awesome! Eddie Trunk, Kari and I had a blast - the Trunk is the best hang! What a trooper, he took a bottle of Beach Bar rum and a bottle of Cabo back to his hotel room???? My man.
As most Redheads know, I've been going to Cabo for my birthday ever since 1981 and in the late 80s my son Andrew was around 3 or 4 and he used to have play-dates with these two kids in the neighborhood - Christian and Carlos Carenzo. Check out the photos from my 42nd birthday with my partners Marco and Jorge and Andrew and the boys and their mother, Alicia.
