High above the rooftops in Camden is The Beach, at the Roundhouse. Pusser’s Rum held a tribute to ‘Black Tot Day’ here and I was invited to attend. Mr R loves a drop of rum too so I took him along.
You don’t expect to find a beach in London especially not a rooftop beach but here it was with lovely white sand, beach huts and people playing volley ball. Not out of place at all!!
The rum was flowing and all the cocktails being made in the Rum Shak contained Pusser’s Rum
Ian Burrell, International Rum Ambassador held a quick masterclass in the art of cocktail making whilst we all had our own masterclass of rum cocktail drinking.
Mr R came with me and I have the evidence he was having a good time!
Was Mr R a ‘Drunken Sailor’ or did he have a ‘Sandy Bottom’? Delicious and easy to drink cocktails from the pop-up Rum Shack on the roof top. And all cocktails made with Pusser’s Navy Rum’s finest!
Black Tot Day is an annual remberence day held on British naval ships to remember the last day a daily ration of rum was given to the sailors. Previously each sailor had a daily ration of a ‘tot’ of rum as a perk for being couped up on a ship for months at a time.
Thanks to Pusser’s Navy Rum for the invite to the beach. All opinions and photos are my own.

It may seem strange that I wanted to, and voluntarily
attended the Telegraph Cruise Show a few weeks ago however since my short
voyage on the Norweigan Escape’s inaugural voyage at the end of last year I
have decided that perhaps the story of cruising has changed and that I, The Reluctant Cruiser, had better get on
Docklands, are full of cruise companies looking for passengers and potential
passengers looking for a good deal or sizeable discount on their 2016
cruise. Often if you book at one of
these shows you get a much better deal.
equal number of cruise companies willing to take you there. I was particularly interested in the idea of
river cruising, not quite such rough waters!
boat’ as they say but I would also like to try other destinations. I have my travel bands ready as well as all
the electronics to keep me busy and my mind from ruminating on all the things
that ‘happen at sea’ as well as plenty of food and drink and entertainment on
board to keep busy should I not want to venture outside!
What a great way to stay hydrated during the show!
Early opening, everyone ready, let the crowds begin!
Had to have my photo taken at the Bahamas stand – 2016 goal is to swim with the pigs in The Bahamas! (photo not to scale!!)
Virgin Holidays were in attendance to try to temp attendees with their exotic range of holidays,
As you know afternoon tea is my utmost favourite meal but in close pursuit is weekend brunch. That lazy Sunday morning of eating your favourite breakfast halfway through the day and sipping orange juice and coffee with possibly something fizzy! And don’t forget Saturday as […]
