Feasting on local melon and tomato (washed down with a “Backyard Daiquiri” of Bacardi, lime, basil, apple melon and maraschino), BBQ rock fish (with a Mount Gay version of an Old Fashioned), Bison steak (with Atlantico private cask, shrub and sherry), and finishing with a Bananas Foster flambe (paired with a Chairman’s Spiced “White Lucian”), attendees prepped their palates for a day long weekend of events centered around rum!
