Imagine a place where the turquoise sea splashes up against white sand beaches while a steel drum band plays “Limbo Rock” as you make love to a hot, eye-patched, peg-legged pirate and an islander braids your hair while feeding bananas to the toucan perched on your shoulder, dancing lightly to the sounds of children blowing into conch shells under a nearby palapa as dolphins play in the distance.
That’s pretty much what Blue Chair Bay rum tastes like. Only more tropical.
It’s always fun to discover a new spirit, but rarely have we had the opportunity to try one so very new. On the market just a couple weeks, the line of three rums from country crooner Kenny Chesney debuts just in time for summer umbrella-drink season.
Available in white, coconut and spiced coconut varieties, each premium rum is perfectly sippable on its own, or ideal in an island-worthy cocktail. The recipe options are practically limitless.
We particularly enjoy the Blue Chair Bay Coconut Spiced served on the rocks with a splash of soda to cut the sweetness. No crazy ingredients necessary.
Better still, the two flavored rums have a mere 26.5% alcohol by volume.
Or about 26.5% less than our own bodies.
