On Thursday the 22nd of December, food and drink lovers of the Casa de Campo community gathered together to enjoy a speciality pairing event hosted at the “Gino In Trastevere” restaurant, in Altos de Chavón, sponsored by Ron Atlantico rum.
Upon arrival guests were treated to a “Ron Atlantico welcome cocktail” of their choice; Mojitos, Caiprinhas and Daquiris were the most popular and the perfect way to start an evening infused with the delicate rum taste of Ron Atlantico.
Following cocktails, the dining experience began; a 4 course seafood menu created by Chef Claudio. With speciality dishes, red onion stuffed with lambi, sea and river shrimp and fish ravioli – each created using one of Ron Atlantico’s 3 variety’s; Private Cask, Reserva and Platino, our Casa de Campo diners were transported to a rum and seafood heaven!
