BACARDI, the world’s best-selling and most awarded rum, unveiled its latest addition to the brand’s flavored rum lineup, BACARDI® Pineapple Fusion™ at last night’s NBA on TNT All-Star Saturday Night Party. The NBA on TNT party featured a performance by award-winning hip hop artist Flo Rida.
John Legend, Ali Larter, DJ Irie, Ellie Goulding, Samantha Harris, Gloria Reuben, Spencer Haywood, Dale Ellis, Cedric Ceballos, Bonzi Wells and others were among the celebrities and NBA Legends that turned out to toast NBA All-Star 2013 with TNT and the NBA in Houston, Texas last night.
While rubbing elbows with tastemakers, attendees were among the first to sample Pineapple Fusion, the new BACARDI flavored rum that is a fusion of pineapple and coconut rums. In the spirit of fusion, the event brought together great cocktails, music and NBA legends.
