Welcome to My Monday

     Today is going to be an interesting one, we are opening up the Rum Lab again and this time experimenting with a new to us Marie Brizard's Chocolat Royal Liqueur.   This is different from other chocolate liqueurs that we have used in the lab in that it is thick like chocolate syrup.   I'm looking forward to put this one through it paces, even though it isn't a rum, it will spend a lot of time with rums this afternoon.

    Gayle Marshall Seale and her friend Kimberly Rich Lupkin stopped by the Rum Bar on Saturday  and Sunday for a few cocktails and some "Southernmost" Key West fun.    As usual, it was great to see them again.    Thanks to Gayle for the nice Doorly's and Foursquare Rums she brought from Barbados .    Looking forward to seeing her and hopefully her husband Richard Seale at the Miami Rum Renaissance, April 16th through the 23rd at the Deauville Beach Resort.

    I'll fill you in on the Rum Lab and have a few of the recipes that worked in tomorrow's blog.     Can't wait to see what we come up with, I know this is going to produce a number of those chocolaty cocktails that so many people love.     ;o)
