Lightkeepers, The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, 455 Grand Bay Drive Key Biscayne, Florida
Rum with a side of history can be found at Lightkeepers. A featured cocktail, the John W.B. Thompson Smoked Old Fashioned made with Ron Cartavio Rum 12 years, LaPhroaig Islay Scotch, Santa Teresa Rhum Orange Liqueur and Orange Bitters, is inspired by the history of the lighthouse. On July 23, 1836, a band of Seminoles attacked the Cape Florida Light, setting the lighthouse tower ablaze. Despite suffering multiple rifle ball wounds and major burns, the assistant keeper, John W.B. Thompson, endured the siege and protected the structure. Though he survived the night, the Cape Florida Light was extinguished from 1836 to 1846.
