Boston’s roots in the rum business go deep (see also: the Great Molasses Flood of 1919), so the next installment in Menton’s Summer Cocktail Series seems especially appropriate. Scheduled for Sunday, July 23rd, Rum’s the Word, will explore the past, present, and future of this storied spirit in Menton’s quiet Gold Bar. You’ll learn what you need to make three different rum cocktails at home, and enjoy them with snacks from the kitchen. Tickets, which can be found here, are $95 including tax and gratuity, and the class begins at 6:00pm. They fill up fast so snap yous up asap.
