Bahama Mama

<h3>Bahama Mama</h3>
<b>Where:</b> Patrick Leahy’s Irish Pub, 2345 Whitney Avenue, Hamden<br>

Even though summer is the perfect time to experiment with new, tropical cocktails, all of that taste-testing can go right to your head. You may end up skipping over the relaxed, buzzed feeling and crash right into the “I’ll have a water please” feeling.<br>
<br>
So if you're craving a summery drink and want to avoid getting too loopy too soon, order the Bahama Mama. The drink evokes a tropical summertime vibe, hence the name.  But the three different kinds of rum in the drink are perfectly proportioned - not too strong, not too weak.  Bahama Mama is an excellent introduction to a night of fun.<br>
