Ron Centenario Rum Tasting Draws Well, While Buffett sings on the other end of Duval

    Dispite the competition of Jimmy Buffett on the other end of Duval Street from the  Rum Bar, Ron Centenario 7 Year Old Rum drew a great crowd as the Phlocked to taste the premium rum and cocktails that were developed in the Rum Lab especially for this event.     The came and enjoyed this fine rum that mixes so well and yet can still be sipped neat or on the rocks.   Anytime that you start with a rum that gives you this capability you are going to have a great cocktail that you can be proud of.     It was a great rum to develop the cocktails for and you can look forward to creating your own premium cocktails with Ron Centenario 7 Year Old rum or any other of the line of fine premium rums.    ;o)   

The First Day in St. Thomas

     After the drive to Miami and the Airplane flight to St. Thomas, we have arrived at the Point Pleasant Resort.     Now it is time to travel back down to Red Hook for some food and libations.    It is absolutely beautiful here with the blue seas and the fun watering holes to drop in on.

     Today we started at Molly Malone's, an Irish pub for cocktails and some much needed food.   This was a great place right on the dock, and the food was wonderful and the drinks even better.   Watching as the stress goes away with each new rum cocktail.     From Molly Malone's it is upstairs at the Marina to The Island Time Pub, a great little open air bar that looks out on the marina and serves a great selection of Happy Hour concoctions from three til 6 pm.    We sat and "chatted" with the bartenders and several locals for an hour or so, then it was off to the next spot.

     Duffy's Love Shack, a Tiki style pub that is heavy with style and good cocktails that will really move you.    The offer up to 52 oz. cocktails in great ceramic mugs that can be refilled at a reduced rate if you use the same mug.     The selection of mugs as well as the selection of cocktails was excellent and a great time was had by all of us .   This is the first day and we have already hit our third watering hole here in St. Thomas.

     Sadly, we must hit the grocery store, stock up on rum, mixers, ice, and oh ya food.    Now it is back to the room overlooking Water Bay and time for some nice evening rum cocktails and just sit back enjoying the serenity.    Tomorrow is another day and it will be fun to see what it has to offer as we glide through this fun adventure of ours.     I'll be keeping you abreast of the new and exciting places that we are finding.     ;o)
