BACARDÍ OAKHEARTWe released an article detailing the launch of BACARDÍ OAKHEART sometime back and ever since then I’ve seen BACARDÍ OAKHEART searches regularly coming up in our webstats - which tells me that there are quite a few people out there searching for OAKHEART Cocktails and other serving suggestions.

So, with the help of the amazing Shervene (the UK Brand Ambassador for Bacardi) we are pleased to offer up a few different simple serves that will help you to enjoy your OAKHEART all the more.

Any Chance of a Drink Please? 

Bacardi Legacy Cocktail Competition: The Finals 2012TheFloatingRumShack.com will be heading up to fancy London Village for the Finals of the Bacardi Legacy Cocktail Competition.  It’s an event we were invited to last year, but couldn’t get along to - missing a great party by all acounts – so for us the anticipation levels are high!  Coupled with the fact that this year marks the 150th birthday of Bacardi rum, we are expecting something a little bit special and if the rather fancy invite we received is anything to go by, then it should be a grand affair indeed!

Don’t Just Imitate… 

Cuban ReviverWe’ve just two more cocktails to feature from this year’s Bacardi UK Legacy finals.  So we’d better get a wiggle on – especially as the finals are this Thursday evening!  The next drink comes from Samantha Fish (who works at Mojo in Leeds) and her drink is called the Cuban Reviver.

It’s all in the Pairing 

Michel Roux Jr & Daniel Dove Ron Zacapa UK Brand AmbassadorThe New Year brings the drinks industry calendar to life and our first invite of the year is something out of the ordinary for us.  A cocktail and canapé pairing is pretty good by anyone’s standards, but when the event is at Roux at the Pembury, the cocktails are made with Zacapa rum and the canapés designed by the Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr.

Oh-and the plan was for five courses…  And did I mention that we’d be drinking Zacapa rum as well?
