Kenny Chesney and Blue Chair Bay® Rum just announced the return of last year’s limited-release Mocha Rum Cream. It now has permanently joined the lineup of “cocktail-enhancing flavors from the Caribbean.”

The new flavor, back by popular demand, leans away from the rest of the lineup’s fruiter pallets and is rich and creamy. Mocha Rum Cream features a blend of slow-brewed coffee and chocolate flavors, with notes of coconut and spices. It is a versatile spirit that can be had in an array of cocktails like the Espresso Martini (see recipe below), in coffee or just to be enjoyed by itself on the rocks.

“With the response from No Shoes Nation, telling us they loved the taste on the rocks, but that it also took some of the work out of making those fancier drinks, like Espresso Martinis or Caribbean Irish coffee, it seemed like a must to add to our line-up. As simple or fancy as you like, Mocha Rum Cream is for No Shoes Nation,” says Chesney of the re-released flavor.

“Nothing allows a nice meal with friends to linger a little longer than a nice cup of coffee or an after dinner cocktail,” he adds. “When we introduced Mocha Rum Cream, I’d hoped it might take the moment into even better conversations.”

To celebrate and enhance the release, Blue Chair Bay and alcoholic ice cream brand Tipsy Scoop teamed up to create an ice cream flavor using the Mocha Rum Cream. The limited edition treat features Blue Chair Bay Rum’s Mocha Rum Cream churned into a “creamy mocha ice cream base, packing a proof up to 5% ABV per serving”.

No Shoes Nation can find the flavor at Tipsy Scoops’ NYC locations. The product is also available to be shipped to all fifty states at TipsyScoop.com and Goldbelly.com, and just in time for a sweet treat for your 21+ loved ones this Valentine’s Day season.

Kenny Chesney is gearing up to launch his I Go Back 2023 Tour with special guest Kelsea Ballerini.

The upcoming trek follows a record-breaking year for Chesney, who played 21 NFL stadiums this past summer. 

“When a year is as hot and alive as 2022 was,” Chesney explains, “you don’t want to try to recapture that magic. Or maybe it’s me. I still have the sounds of diesel engines and No Shoes Nation in my head – and that made me ask, ‘What else could I do? What would be something that would put me every bit as much in the music and give No Shoes Nation another reason to believe? How can we reach those people who might not come to stadium shows, who live a little off the obvious path, but who love this music every bit as much…

“And that’s when it hit me: ‘I Go Back.’ That song is about holding all those things that shaped you very close, recognizing how special they are – and keeping them alive any way you can. So, I decided that rather than just go repeat what we did, I wanted to take this band and these songs to a lot of the cities we played on our way up! Let’s call the tour I Go Back – and do just that.”

Chesney’s I Go Back 2023 Tour officially kicks off on March 23 in Charlottesville, VA. For a full list of upcoming dates, click HERE.
