Hanging With Bahama Bob in Key West, Florida

Yolo Rum now available at the Rum Bar at the Speakeasy Inn after a visit to see our friend Bahama Bob Leonard in Key West, Florida

It’s not to often that you get a chance to go out and sing karaoke with Bahama Bob.  It’s just not an every day occurrence, so when the opportunity presents itself, then you better be ready to seize the opportunity.  All in a days work, and we couldn’t have asked for anything more from our journey to Key West, Florida to link up with one of the most notorious and interesting people in rum, at one of the most storied and widely recognized rum bars in the world.  So finally, here we were, with the Yolo Rum Outback parked in front of the the Rum Bar at the Speakeasy Inn on Duval St.

This would be Yolo Rum’s introduction to Key West, and likewise, for many in Key West, this would be their introduction to Yolo Rum.  Bahama Bob has had plenty of exposure to Yolo Rum.  He was on the RumXP judging panel at the 2015 Miami Rum Renaissance Festival that awarded Yolo Rum Gold a RumXP Gold Medal, and he has also been kind enough to review Yolo Rum for his blog “Bahama Bob’s Rumstyles”.  For many others that we had the opportunity to meet and visit with during our tasting at the Rum Bar at the Speakeasy Inn, Yolo Rum might not have been a familiar name yet, but Don Pancho Fernandez was a name that they were certainly well aware of.  This is what put us on the radar for Bahama Bob, as his prominence in the rum world has lead to a personal friendship with Don Pancho Fernandez, the Master Distiller and rum blender behind Yolo Rum.  In most cases, just knowing that Yolo is a Don Pancho rum was all the info necessary to be accepted with open arms.  Each cocktail and sip of Yolo was followed by overwhelming approval, and soon enough we had a room full of believers.  And as Bahama Bob carefully crafted cocktail, after Yolo Rum cocktail, it gave us the opportunity to mingle with our new friends.

One question or comment that would come up often would be about the name Yolo Rum, so it provided a great opportunity to educate about the name.  “What does it mean, and where did it come from?” was often the line of questioning.  Some were not familiar with the acronym “You Only Live Once”.  For us, Yolo means to slow down, enjoy the moment, make the most of now, live life, experience the best things because you deserve it.  You Only Live Once!  Like the roman poet Horace says “carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero”, loosely translated “Seize the day, put very little trust in tomorrow (the future)”.  And then the light turns on, and it makes sense.  The name.  The meaning.  The message.  The best rum in the world can only be accompanied by a name that embodies what it means to reflect in that moment and be present.  Tomorrow is promised to no one.

New Yolo Rum friends with some new shirts


All-in-all it was an amazing time and a memorable experience that was very special.  The bartender and the venue made it a moment that Yolo Rum could be so proud of.  We made many new friends, as we usually do at these tastings.  There was our new friend Sam, a co-worker and friend of Bob’s from the Speakeasy Inn, and also a fellow member of The Rat Key Rum Tasters Association.  She promised to rock one of our Yolo Rum shirts at one of their upcoming weekly rum tastings and snap a photo for us.  We also got to hang out with birthday girl Toni, who was nice enough to pose with a shirt and bottle for us.  And there were so many others.  Thanks so much to everyone that made it down to the tasting at the Rum Bar.  Now we just need our own original signature Bahama Bob Yolo Rum cocktail, and then maybe we can be in one of Bahama Bob’s famous cocktail recipe books.


Yolo Rum Coming to the Rum Bar at the Speakeasy Inn, Key West, Florida

Yolo Rum at the Rum Bar in Key West

Join us at the Rum Bar at the Speakeasy Inn on Duval St. this Thursday September 17th for a special two hour Yolo Rum tasting hosted by Bahama Bob Leonard

Yolo Rum is finally coming to Key West, Florida, and to celebrate, we invite you to join us at the Rum Bar at the Speakeasy Inn on Duval St. (1117 Duval St. Key West, FL 33040) this Thursday Sept. 17th from 4 PM – 6 PM.  Bahama Bob Leonard has been kind enough to invite us in for an exclusive two hour tasting at the Rum Bar to provide the opportunity to taste these award winning rums from Don Pancho Fernandez.

Key West has a long history with rum, due in part to the extended residency of Earnest Hemingway, a notorious rum drinker himself.  Hemingway visited Key West for the first time in 1928.  Then Hemingway, wife Pauline, and their two sons lived together at the now “Hemingway House“, just a few blocks away, from 1931-1940.  Well beyond that, The Speakeasy Inn was the home of Raul Vaquez, who was a cigar selector at the Gato cigar factory.  Raul’s true passion was rum-running between Key West and Cuba.  Raul’s affection for adventure, rum, and gambling manifested itself as “The Florence Club“, a speakeasy that Raul operated in the back of his home.  “The Florence Club” was a successful and popular speakeasy during the Prohibition era.  In general, Key West’s close proximity to the coast of Havana Cuba created quite the market for one of Cuba’s most desirable exports, rum.

Besides this location being steeped in the history of rum in Key West.  Fast forward to the present, when the Rum Bar at the Speakeasy Inn was recognized as “One of the world best rum bars” by Caribbean Journal in 2014.  The Caribbean Journal calls the Rum Bar “…a classic in the heart of a town that loves the spirit.”  And the man behind the bar, if your lucky, is the Rum Bar’s leader, and another rum icon in his own right, “Bahama Bob” Leonard.  Surely, if you are a rum drinker in Key West (or not living under a rock) then you know who Bahama Bob Leonard is.  For those that might not know who Bahama Bob is, then here is a brief introduction.

Bahama Bob Leonard with Yolo Rum and his boat

Bob was a NASCAR Racing chassis and suspension engineer until 2007.  Now you can find Bahama Bob behind the counter of the Rum Bar serving up drinks and wisdom to travelers and rum adventurers far and wide.  You can follow along with the musings of Bahama Bob on his website and blog “Bahama Bob’s Rumstyles“.  Bahama Bob Leonard has also been a RumXP Judge for the Miami Rum Renaissance Festival, and was a member of the 2015 judging panel that awarded Yolo Rum with RumXP Gold at the 2015 Miami Rum Fest.  And just recently, the Caribbean Journal tabbed Bahama Bob as one of “The most interesting people in rum“.

It is a great honor to have Yolo Rum behind the bar of one of the most storied and highly regarded establishments as the Rum Bar at the Speakeasy Inn.  Furthermore, it’s very exciting to imagine the patrons of the Rum Bar being served a Yolo Rum cocktail by one of the most recognized and prolific individuals in the rum world.  So please join in this Thursday for our launch in Key West.  Come share in an evening of good friends, and great rum.

New Yolo Tropic Cocktail Recipe by Mandy Williard from Outback Steakhouse


Send your taste buds on a vacation with the Yolo Tropic, a new Yolo Rum cocktail recipe created by Outbacker Mandy Williard

Our friends over at Outback Steakhouse recently gathered some of their Outbackers from among their southern Florida restaurants to create an all new Yolo Rum cocktail recipe during their annual bar refresher meeting.

In the end, stand out honors went to Mandy Williard (Outbacker from Sebring, FL) whose creation named the “Yolo Tropic” stole the show.

In the delicious new Yolo Rum cocktail recipe, the Yolo Tropic, Mandy uses premium Yolo Rum Silver with a blend of cranberry, pineapple, and mango juices atop muddled strawberries and crushed pineapple to send your taste buds on the vacation they deserve!

Easily Make a Strawberry Mojito with this Yolo Rum Recipe

Watch as Bella from Mickey Quinn’s Beach in Indian Shores, Florida shares her recipe to easily make a quick Strawberry Yolo Rum Mojito!

If you’re looking for a refreshing way to put a sweet and tasty spin on a classic Mojito cocktail recipe, look no further.  We took the task to Indian Shores, Florida, where Bella from Mickey Quinn’s Beach gives us the rundown of how to easily make a quick Strawberry Yolo Rum Mojito.


2 oz. Yolo Rum Silver

1.5 oz Simple Syrup (*see below for instructions of how to make simple syrup)

Sliced Strawberries

3 Mint Leaves

Soda Water


Step 1

In a chilled glass (about 10 – 12 oz), add about 1.5 oz of simple syrup, 3 mint leaves, and 3 strawberry slices (more or less to taste preference).  Crush ingredients with a muddler (or a spoon will work).  Muddle well to release the juices from the strawberries and the essential oils from the mint leaves.

Step 2

Add 2 oz. of Yolo Rum Silver to the mixture.

Step 3

Add ice and top off with soda water.

Step 4

Garnish with another strawberry slice.

Enjoy!  (Repeat if necessary)

*Don’t have simple syrup?  No problem!  You can easily make the same kind of simple syrup typically used in most bars in just minutes.  Just combine about 1 part sugar and 1 part water into a water bottle, and shake until the sugar completely dissolves.
