the whaling club, havana club

double-photoWhen Dan and I were in Mexico last month we picked up a few bottles of Havana Club rum for a very special Whaling Club. ¬†Havana Club is an awesome Cuban rum that you can’t buy in the United States. Chef Frank Anderson joined us again with adorable and delicious Cuban sandwiches (I had three, no big deal) and Dan’s cocktails were the perfect way to celebrate the last month of summer. He started everyone off with a classic shaken Pineapple Daiquiri followed by a gorgeous Queen’s Park Swizzle over crushed iced. He finished with an Old Havana, which I think was many guest’s first stirred rum cocktail. ¬†We had all new-to-whaling-club guests, and it was such a pleasure meeting everyone and enjoying cocktails together! I have a feeling they won’t be first timers for long.IMG_6516IMG_6524-EditIMG_6532augustmenuIMG_6548IMG_6527IMG_6543-2
