Last night, our good friends at Captain Morgan invited us out for the Dallas tasting of their newest rum product: Captain Morgan Black.
They actually sent me a sample some time ago, packaged immaculately in a sturdy black box with all the rum fixin’s one could ask for (see picture here), but I’ve been saving it for a special occasion so I hadn’t yet tasted it.
Plus, I must admit: I’m not really a rum guy.
To channel the interesting words of a well-known man…I don’t always drink liquor, but when I do, I prefer whiskey.
Still, I was excited to head out to the event with a fellow blogger, meet Zack and Kelly (finally!) who were putting it on, have a few tastes, and perhaps even learn a few drink mixing tips and tricks from esteemed mixologist Toby Maloney.
It turned out to be all that and more.
Here are a few lessons, tips, and other nuggets I learned during what turned out to be a most enjoyable evening.
