Cancun Travel Day

   Today is a travel day for me headed to Cancun  for my VACATION!!!!!!
I will be posting as usual, but the subject matter is up for grabs as I don't know what I may be doing or seeing to write about.

The Rummy Quintet:  Karaoke Style

Mount Gay Extra Old: The Mixer?

     Mount Gay Extra Old is one of the premier rums on the market today.  It is known for it's sipping qualities and the bold taste of wood, fruit and spice with a long lasting warm finish.   This rum is an excellent mixer as well.  It adds a boldness to ultra premium cocktails that is missing with many other rums.    It fits well with the back deck of the boat at sunset or on a starry moon lit night in a snifter and a couple of ice cubes, but it fits there in a fine cocktail as well.

     In preparation for the Yacht Races in Key West we are developing a few new cocktails with Mount Gay Extra Old.    These are cocktails that will be available at the Rum Bar in Key West in the evening during the races, January 15 - 20, 2013.
