Lovers of great Irish whiskey and the Boston Red Sox (or visiting teams) are in luck this year, with the arrival of Tullamore D.E.W. as the official whiskey of the Boston Red Sox,  now being poured at the recently unveiled Tully Tavern.

About Tully Tavern:

Located in the Right Field Grandstand section, the 2,450 square feet bar features a magnificent view where fans can gather to cheer on the Sox while enjoying the convivial atmosphere of a good Irish pub. Created with the look and feel of the legendary Irish whiskey distillery, Tully Tavern will give ticket holders the opportunity to enjoy Tullamore D.E.W., a triple-blended, triple distilled Irish whiskey in signature cocktails such as the Monster Mule.

 

Boston Red Sox

The team from Tullamore D.E.W. kindly hosted us at a game earlier in the week, sharing plenty of delicious, easy-to-drink Monster Mules paired with Fenway’s favorite snacks. We’re whiskey fans in our house, and it’s well-worth noting how smooth Tullamore D.E.W. is, whether mixed in a cocktail or on its own. Fenway can’t pour it on its own because, Boston, but having a bottle on hand at home for a chilly spring/never-ending winter night is definitely a necessity here!

Despite the cold, we warmed up nicely after a couple of Monster Mules! Tully Tavern and Tullamore D.E.W. are great additions to the time-honored Boston ballpark.

Interested in visiting Tully Tavern?

Seats are sold through group sales (http://m.mlb.com/redsox/tickets/group/) and tickets range from $35 to 75 a seat depending on the game.

 

Can’t get to a Red Sox game? You can still enjoy a Monster Mule at home! You’ll find me mixing these up for boat days this summer!

Happy National Rum Day! I love a holiday, and I love that national food and drink days give us something to celebrate every day. Life is too short to not celebrate, isn’t it?

We are celebrating National Rum Day with our friends at Brugal, who very kindly sent me samples of their Ron Blanco Especial and Ron Añejo to whip up some delicious cocktails.

Our first cocktail is called Boat Drink because that is where we enjoyed it over the weekend and the perfect place for a fruit rum cocktail to be served.

I started with about 1/3 of this bottle of Brugal Ron Blanco Especial.

I poured it into my trusty plastic cocktail pitcher along with 17 ounces of Vita Coco coconut water with pineapple, half a can of Dole pineapple juice and a generous splash of Angostura bitters.

Before heading down to the boat, I poured myself a sample cocktail in one of my nana’s dessert dishes. Don’t tell my nana I am using her dessert dishes for cocktails, but I love how Drink serves their cocktails in fun containers and thought these were perfect.

The second rum cocktail we made using this delicious rum was a kicked up Dark and Stormy.

Brugal Anejo

The cocktail contained the Ron Añejo, a shot and a half per glass.

I mixed that with a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger. You can never have too much ginger spice!

To each glass, I added half a bottle of Reed’s ginger beer. While I like this ginger beer, I wish it was spicier. I may try making my own sometime soon.

This kicked up Brual Dark and Stormy is topped off with a generous amount of lime juice, half of a very juicy lime in each glass, and lots of ice.

We have more rum left to mix up cocktails, AND Brugal sent us some cocktail recipes from Eastern Standard and The Wequasset Resort on Cape Cod. Long live National Rum Day and the summer!

What are your favorite rum cocktails?
