The Centenario Menu is Complete

     The Ron Centenario 7 Year Old Rum Menu is now set for the up and coming promotions to be held at the Rum Bar in Key West on the 4th of November, 2011.     This is going to be a very special event featuring the Ron Centenario  line of fine rums, plus a menu of $5.00 cocktails featuring Ron Centenario 7 Year Old Rum.      These are all new Bahama Bob Cocktails that were created just for this Ron Centenario event following a couple of days of research in the Rum Lab .     The best and the worst part of this is that it took some real work to come up with 5 cocktails of this caliber because the rum is so good and delicate on it's own.   Many of the recipe ideas buried the fine flavor of this very special rum in the mix, loosing the special flavor of the rum.     The good part is that when we got it right, it was really right, and these cocktails are really something special.
