I ❤︎ RHUM Series: Three Super Cocktails from Abdul Tabini and The Rum House

One place I thought of immediately when putting together this rum story was, of course, The Rum House—a true feeling of old New York right in the midst of Times Square. This place does provide a haven from the hustle and bustle and tourist traps. Do come here to not only enjoy cocktails but also live jazz. To follow are 2 cocktails from Abdul Tabini and 1 from bartender Abel Rodriguez. Abdul Tabini gained local fame at his stint at The Odeon, and went on to open beloved Ward III and The Rum House.
