Let’s talk about Rum Creams for a minute.
First of all, if you didn’t know this was a thing: you’re welcome. Rum Creams, just like any other creamy alcoholic beverage, are a combination of Rum and dairy cream. What’s nice about them is they have a very decadent and dessert-y quality without having to actually mix anything. Maybe throw in an ice cube or something. Or just chill ahead of time. Lazy drinks are the BEST.
What’s not nice about them? They can be a little bit addicting!
This one’s an old favorite around these parts: Blue Chair Bay Key Lime Rum Cream. Blue Chair Bay is Kenny Chesney’s line of rums. I’m not a huge country music fan (sorry, most-of-America), but he did a good job with these. A lot of times you’ll see a celebrity sign on with a distillery or winery and it’s just a name, not quality. But these are good. REAL good.
The Key Lime Rum Cream is the BOMB.
If you’ve every been to Key West, FL, you’ve probably had a Key Lime something-or-other, whether it’s a cocktail or a pie, or something else entirely. The flavor of a Key Lime is pretty distinctive, with a higher acidity than a typical lime. So you get citrus with a distinctive tart– the perfect accompaniment to sweet and smooth Caribbean rum and real dairy cream.
Blue Chair Bay Key Lime Rum Cream makes me want to plop down in a beach chair with a chilled glass and a teeny umbrella, and just take it all in one sip at a time. Preferably from that beach pictured above. Take me back!!
Join me on my pretend beach journey this Friday, May 10th from 4pm to 7pm at Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits for a FREE sample of Blue Chair Bay Key Lime Rum Cream. It’s the perfect way to start your weekend B-)
