Bonefish Grill is turning their focus to rum this month, with Bonefish founder Tim Curci adventuring down to the Florida Keys to do some rum running.

During his adventures, Curci stops by the original Tiki Bar in the Florida Keys, learns about the history of rum, and worked with Myers Rum to create new cocktails. He also stops to chat with Trapper, one of the original bartenders at the Tiki Bar in the Florida Keys, who gives us the recipe for the original version of the Rum Runner.

The folks at Bonefish Grill are also sharing their Coconut Pie with Myers Rum sauce recipe for those looking for something different. To view additional webisodes from Bonefish, visit their Youtube page, or view sample menus and offers on their website or facebook page.
