Don Q Cocktail Dinner at The Breadfruit

  • The Breadfruit & Rum Bar (map)

Join Roberto Serrallés, 6th generation rum maker of Puerto Rico-based Don Q, for a special one-night-only cocktail dinner at The Breadfruit & Rum Bar on Monday, July 31 at 5 pm.  Serrallés and The Breadfruit and Rum Bar come together to celebrate Puerto Rico’s #1 rum paired with award-winning Jamaican cuisine. Cost: $55 per person.

The first Arizona restaurant to qualify for the Smart Catch designation from the James Beard Foundation, Breadfruit will orchestrate a four-course prix fixe dinner for this occasion, featuring creative dishes made with sustainably-caught seafood caught in an environmentally responsible manner. Serrallés will pair cocktails made from a selection of luxury Don Q expressions, including the recently-released, limited-edition Single Barrel 2007, to elevate each course. Also crafted with a high caliber of sustainable methods, including real energy return and post-production materials, the Don Q spirits match Breadfruit’s clean & green approach, that make both teams ecologically responsible leaders in their category.
