Last Thursday was the fancy-pantsy Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival Preview Party, held in the Grand Ballroom at the Ritz-Carlton. There was plenty of food, booze and amusements for the well-heeled swells who attended, but at the center of it all was the official Foobooz-sanctioned Captain Morgan Black cocktail competition–which we sanctioned mostly because it was a good excuse for everyone to drink a little rum get all pirate-y for a night.
The challenge was thus: To create an original cocktail using Captain Morgan spiced rum as a primary ingredient. And bartenders from all over the city rose to the task. After the jump, check out a few of the rum cocktail recipes–including the one for the winning drink: The Captain Rumorita, courtesy of bartender Scott Innes of Rumor.
