5 of the finest rum cocktails to try in Cardiff – and to make at home
Rum cocktail

The Full Moon Rum Festival returns to Cardiff’s Full Moon bar from 22 to 24 May 2015, an opportunity to sample over 100 different bottles of the nectar of the gods.

Running over the Whitsun Bank Holiday weekend, each day will have a different rum-based theme; Friday 22 is Cuban themed, Saturday 23 is pirate themed and Sunday 24 is Caribbean themed.

The bar will also be styled to fit the day’s theme, with live music from Fiesta Resistance, The Captain’s Beard and The Barefoot Bandit to set the scene.

With a little help from the festival organisers, we’ve listed five of the drinks available over the weekend, along with the ingredients required to enjoy a rum cocktail in the comfort of your own home.
