Rum Running on the Bay
May 6, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm$89.00
Celebrate the History of Rum with the unique experience of Rum Running on the Bay.
Join us for a two and a half hour sunset sail on the Bay, while learning about rum, prohibition, sailing, food pairing, cocktail making and so much more!
During Prohibition (1920 to 1933) it was illegal to consume alcohol in the United States. Cruises to “Nowhere” were set up to allow people, on board these cruises, to enjoy the consumption of alcohol once the ships crossed into international waters. At the same time frame “rum runners” would smuggle rum and other spirits from the Caribbean into the United States to help supply alcohol for a speakeasy and other illegal watering holes.
Light and Breezy: Papa’s Pilar Blonde Rum, Citrus, Mint Syrup, & Ginger Beer. A light refreshing spin on a familiar classic. Paired with Grilled Shrimp with a Coconut Mango Salsa.
