Here's the bad news: there are two more classes offered in this series, but they are both sold out.
Lucky for you, there is good news too! I'm here to share five rum cocktails I learned how to make in the class. And remember, you can go and get your own cocktail at America Eats Tavern any time you want! Feel better? ;)
Let's get back to rum. The only way I've used rum in the past was to make vanilla extract, and I absolutely loved it. I also am quite a big fan of mojitos, but sadly those weren't served in the class.
Instead, Owen Thomson, Lead Bartender for Think Food Group, and Ben Wiley, Head Bartender
at the America Eats Tavern, educated me and the other students on the origins and different types of rum, and made us five different cocktails. The amount of knowledge these two men have is hard to express. I was quite mesmerized...drinking at 3 pm might have something to do with that as well.
Are you ready for some cocktails?
Luckily, in addition to the five cocktails, we were also served three snacks: hush puppies, a crab cake with spicy mayonnaise and pickled watermelon rind, and grilled butter oysters.
What's YOUR favorite rum cocktail?
