Miami Rum Renaissance Festival was an event unlike anything we’ve ever attended! With over 100 rum companies there from all over the world, we tasted flavors we never knew existed. It was the PERFECT place to start Lighthouse Rum Cakes search for our next flavor!
This is what we call a GREAT business trip…
Lighthouse Rum Cakes current flavors are original, chocolate and coconut. Original is a vanilla bean with a hint of butter and drizzled with walnuts. Chocolate is a perfect balance of cocoa and rum with a very smooth texture. Coconut has actual coconut flakes and is made with a combination of different rums and is our most popular!
To name a few great rums at the show:
Goslings handed out their famous Dark and Stormy drink. One of our favorites! A perfect blend of sweetness and rum, not overpowering and very refreshing.
Dark & Stormy Recipe:
- 1/4 lime, cut into two thick slices, one for garnish, one to squeeze over the ice (optional)
- 2 ounces Gosling’s Black Seal Bermuda black rum
- 4 ounces ginger beer (Gosling’s makes one just for this purpose)
- fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1 1/2 fluid ounces white rum
- 1/2 cup lemon-lime or club soda

Saturday morning charges a higher admission and is meant for media and the rum connoisseur. This would be the time I would recommend to go! There was a very comfortable amount of people and no lines at any booths. From 4-7 pm admission goes down and it gets busy quick!
