Fresh off a research trip to Panama, Bahama Bob returns to Key West with a new boat drink in his bartender bag of tricks. Here’s the latest-The Lord Panama.
Boat Drinks w/ Bahama Bob
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, nothing is quite as refreshing as a well-balanced rum drink. For us, something simple, uncluttered and tropical is the way to go.
When it comes to acquiring such drinks in Key West you need not look any further than The Rum Bar on Duval Street where Bahama Bob mans the day shift and cranks out tropical libations to an audience of happy patrons. Bob has been studying cocktails for years and travels far and wide to score new and interesting drink recipes.
A few months ago his cocktail and rum research brought him all the way to Panama. After several days touring distilleries, aging facilities and beach resorts (tough job) he discovered a local drink that is sure to take the edge off a hot day. With lime juice, iced tea and a generous measure of rum, you really can’t go wrong with this one.
Here’s the Lord Panama Cocktail. Enjoy.
