Three Cheers to Rum!
This Wednesday, August 16th is National Rum Day! What better way to celebrate than to raise your glass with a classic or not-so-traditional rum bevvy? When it comes to celebrating with a rum cocktail, the restaurants at the SHOPS Gainey Village have you covered! Over at the Village Tavern, give the Painkiller Tiki cocktail a try! Featuring Bacardi Superior Rum, Myer’s Original Dark Rum, Coco Real, mango puree, fresh pineapple juice and a splash of fresh cream, your mid-week worries will soon be washed away with this tropical treat. For those looking for a more traditional rum concoction, with a twist, the Spirited Old Fashioned features Hennessy V.S. Cognac, Bacardi Ocho Rum, Knob Creek Bourbon, Village Tavern’s own craft syrup, and zest from a fresh orange peel, stirred, strained and served in a traditional rocks glass — classic. The daiquiri at Drexyl Modern American isn’t the traditional pina colada or strawberry version you might be used to, but we’re certain you’ll become a convert after just one sip. Wherever you decide to celebrate National Rum Day, we’re certain you’ll find a cocktail that suits your tastes at the SHOPS Gainey Village. Cheers!
