Rum in Cocktails: A Cocktail Demo with Paul McGee

  • Morgan's On Fulton 950 West Fulton Street Chicago, IL, 60607 United States (map)

Join us as we hear from lauded Chicago bartender, Paul McGee, of Lost Lake Tiki Bar, about his thoughts on tiki cocktails, the history behind these drinks, and how you can make them.

Which rum for which cocktail? Paul will demonstrate why a rum is not a rum is not a rum... Each style of rum requires different accompaniments to really sing, including: 

  • Spanish-style rum: daiquiri, Mojito, Presidente
  • English-style rum: Planter's Punch, Rum + Coke (Caribbean Cocktail), rum old fashioned
  • French-style rum: Ti Punch, Punch Vieux, Martinique Swizzle, Mai Tai

For those who don’t know of the many wonders the world of rum has to offer, this one is not to be missed.
