Summer Rum at City Park

Written by  InthekNOwla.com Staff

(InthekNOwla) -- "Yo ho ho and a whole lot of rum!" Actually, make that BEAUCOUP rum! InthekNOwla scored some great pirate's booty this weekend: drinks, food, drinks, music, drinks, rides, and more and more drinks!!!

Friends of City Park recently held their annual Summer Rum event at the Carousel Garden Amusement Park. We hadn't been to the Amusement Park in ages and it felt so wonderful to be in a place that brought back so many good memories from our childhood.

So first things first, where's the food and definitely where's the rum? We were treated to some great food - jambalaya, muffalattas, fried chicken, artichoke pasta, salad, and others - all circling the beautiful carousel in the park. But the rum is what we are all here for right??? Well, lemme tell you...there were 12 rum-specialty drinks, 3 kinds of mojitos, and snowballs...with rum!!! Ahhh, heaven on earth!

Some of our favorites were the "Coconutini" (Rum Jumbie Coconut Splash, Vodka, Splash of Cranberry Juice), "Jamaica Me Crazy" (Appleton Gold Rum with Tia Maria & Pineapple Juice), and the oh so sweet and delicious, "Pirate's Punch" (Malibu Coconut, Malibu Banana, Malibu Pineapple, Malibu Island Melon, Malibu Passion Fruit and Malibu Mango, Pineapple Juice, Cranberry Juice). And considering how hot it was out there, we were sucking these things down like water.

In between eating and drinking, we got to listen to some great live music, ride on some of the rides (although we don't remember the roller coaster and ferris wheel being so scary...maybe we hadn't had enough rum yet), and of course talk to some real-life pirates!

InthekNOwla had a fantastic time at Summer Rum and can't wait for next year!
