Rumtoberfest at Bahama Breeze

8735 Vineland Ave.
Orlando, FL 32821

(407) 938-9010

Bahama Breeze Island Grille is celebrating rum through November 2nd with Rumtoberfest. The six-week long event includes a host of new food and drink offerings, instant win prizes and special Thursday night events in each restaurant.

The rum revelry will peak each Thursday in October, as each Bahama Breeze restaurant celebrates RumThursty beginning at 8 PM each week. The late night parties will feature live music, contests and, of course, rum.

During each RumThursty night, guests can enter to win a trip to the islands in Bahama Breeze’s Instagram Sweeps. One winner will be selected each week to receive a getaway for two to the Super-Inclusive Breezes Resort & Spa in the Bahamas. To enter guests must post a photo on Instagram from the restaurant using #RumSweeps. Offering more chances to win, each Bahama Breeze will also host in-restaurant giveaways for gift cards, t-shirts and more each RumThursty party.


To celebrate one of the world’s favorite rum cocktails, Bahama Breeze has introduced five new fresh fruit mojitos. Each hand-crafted drink features fresh-pressed sugar cane juice, crushed mint and fresh fruit. Variations range from sweet to spicy, including a Strawberry Mojito crafted from Bacardi DragonFruit rum and fresh strawberries and the Mango Jalapeno Mojito made with Cruzan Mango rum, mango puree and fresh jalapeno peppers.

Bahama Breeze is also offering a premium rum flight to showcase the spicy aromas and complex flavors of rum. The Island Rum Tour features Seven Fathoms, Pyrat XO Reserve and Zaya Gran Reserva 12 Year rums. The flight is presented in tasting glasses on a custom board accompanied by tasting notes for each selection.*

The chefs at Bahama Breeze have created two new rum-infused dishes for the occasion. Inspired by the classic cocktail, Rum and Coke Wings feature Bahama Breeze’s signature chicken wings smothered in a house-made sauce with Myers’ Original Dark Rum. For a sweet finish to any meal, the classic Rum Cake is made with Bacardi Oakheart Rum and topped with raisin butterscotch sauce and vanilla bean ice cream.


Our Rum Flight was superb.  From left to right you have Seven Fathoms, Zaya Gran Reserva, Pyrat XO Reserve. My favorite was the Zaya Gran Reserva. Deep Vanilla flavors and caramel aroma.



The Mango Jalapeno Mojito was full of sweet and heat. The Coconut Mojito was really good as well.




The new appetizer of Rum and Coke Wings was a tad too sweet for my liking, but tasty nonetheless. 





I ordered the Ropa Joe Sandwich as my entree. Its the traditional ropa vieja shredded beef, but topped with cheese, peppers and onions, served on Cuban Bread...and it was delicious.


My guest decided on the Mojo Pork Cubano for an entree choice. This dish is made with fried pieces of pork covered in mojo sauce and pickled onions and is served with yellow rice and sweet plantains.

The star of the show was the Island Rum Cake made with Bacardi Oakheart Rum, topped with homemade raisin butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice creamThis is an awesome desert, and worth a trip to Bahama Breeze all on its own.
