Oktoberfest? Rumtoberfest! at Bahama Breeze Island Grille now through Nov. 2nd

Bahama Breeze Island Grille, the restaurant that gives guests the feeling of an island escape, is celebrating rum through November 2 with Rumtoberfest®. The six-week long event includes a host of new food and drink offerings, instant win prizes and special Thursday night events in each restaurant.

The rum revelry will peak each Thursday in October, as each Bahama Breeze restaurant celebrates RumThursty. Beginning at 8 PM each week, the late night parties will feature live music, contests and, of course, rum. 

I attended the very first RumThursty at the Altamonte Springs location and had a great time. The new rum mojitos are fantastic. I recommend the pineapple, but everyone I tried was good. Love those cane sugar stalks in each drink!

During each RumThursty night, guests can enter to win a trip to the islands in Bahama Breeze’s Instagram Sweeps. One winner will be selected each week to receive a getaway for two to the Super-Inclusive® Breezes Resort & Spa in the Bahamas. To enter guests must post a photo on Instagram from the restaurant using #RumSweeps. Offering more chances to win, each Bahama Breeze will also host in-restaurant giveaways for gift cards, t-shirts and more each RumThursty party.

“Rumtoberfest is Bahama Breeze’s take on Oktoberfest, full of great food and drinks and good times with friends and family,” said Michael Kneidinger, president of Bahama Breeze. “Guest feedback from Rumtoberfest was incredible last year, so we knew that we had to bring the celebration back bigger and better this year.”

To celebrate one of the world’s favorite rum cocktails, Bahama Breeze has introduced five new fresh fruit mojitos. Each hand-crafted drink features fresh-pressed sugar cane juice, crushed mint and fresh fruit. Variations range from sweet to spicy, including a Strawberry Mojito crafted from Bacardi DragonFruit rum and fresh strawberries and the Mango Jalapeño Mojito made with Cruzan Mango rum, mango puree and fresh jalapeño peppers.

Bahama Breeze is also offering a premium rum flight to showcase the spicy aromas and complex flavors of rum. The Island Rum Tour features Seven Fathoms, Pyrat XO Reserve and Zaya Gran Reserva 12 Year rums. The flight is presented in tasting glasses on a custom board accompanied by tasting notes for each selection.

The chefs at Bahama Breeze have created two new rum-infused dishes for the occasion. Inspired by the classic cocktail, Rum and Coke Wings feature Bahama Breeze’s signature chicken wings smothered in a house-made sauce with Myers’ Original Dark Rum. For a sweet finish to any meal, the classic Rum Cake is made with Bacardi Oakheart Rum and topped with raisin butterscotch sauce and vanilla bean ice cream.
