About Houston Caribbean RumFest
Houston Caribbean RumFest brings revelers together to learn about the history of rum—but just sipping will do just as well. At this party, rum samples abound, and so do many hallmarks of Caribbean culture. Traditional jerks, curries, and rum-infused bites and cocktails bring added spice to the festivities, while live Caribbean music provides an island soundtrack. Other activities include cocktail classes and painting. Giving rum some more time in the spotlight, the flair bartending contest has drink mixers delighting onlookers with dazzling tricks that delight far better than just gluing a coaster to the bottom of each glass.
