Time Flies When You're Having Rum

Ophelia's On The Bay

BY SRQ DAILY FRESHLY SQUEEZED CONTENT EVERY MORNING THURSDAY APR 26, 2018

So Sarasota isn’t tropical enough for you? You don’t have to run far to dispatch yourself to the Caribbean with this handcrafted Tiki cocktail. At Ophelia’s, the Rum Hum Punch is a sound approach to a lay-back, feet-up kind of day by the bay. As far as spirits go, you and your party will be asking Captain who? Because Morgan means nothing when you live in an area that distills its own award-winning premium rum. Siesta Key White Rum and Spiced Rum are both used to mix this summer cocktail up, along with Banane du Bresil, Creme de Mure, fresh tropical juices and crushed ice. The local twist on a classic rum runner is dangerously drinkable and presents itself in a groovy tribal man glass, garnished with an edible orchid and mint leaves. For the tropical-fiends at heart, head on bayside to fill your Caribbean void. The natural splendour of Ophelia’s provides fun, islandy vibes whilst serving up the refreshing, tiki libations you crave on a humid Florida day.
