Plantation Jamaica Old Reserve 2000 Rum.  Go find it.  You're welcome.

Spiced rum, ginger ale, and a slice of citrus on a warm summer afternoon.

I need a good sea-shanty to drink rum.

"Rub a dub dub ..."

Nope, not that one.

Sixteen men on a dead man's chest

"Yo, ho, and a bottle of rum !!!"


Errk:
Spiced rum, ginger ale, and a slice of citrus on a warm summer afternoon.

Straight Mount Gay on ice, with a twist of lemon.

Bacardi Ocho Años for me, a decent mid-range rum.  Great mix with lemonade/limeade, grapefruit soda, or ginger ale.

Take 2 ounces of either Mount Gay or Cavalier rum.  Add ice and club soda to taste.

Good luck finding Cavalier outside the islands.

Pairs well with "National Sodomy Day", which is tomorrow.

/oooh, not looking forward to that Monday after, either...

The "Wakeup Call":

1. Get highball or old fashioned glass
2. Fill to the brim with Sailor Jerry's rum
3. Enjoy!

Well, if it's Puerto Rican bathtub rum that's basically alcoholic molasses, sure.  Had a co-worker who brought some up once; awesome stuff.

Real men drink it straight from the bottle.
 
2014-08-16 01:15:36 PM  
Combine in a high ball glass one part Mount Gay Eclipse in three to four parts chilled Kola Tonic depending on taste; Q Kola is an acceptable but less proper alternative.

MooseBayou: Straight Mount Gay on ice, with a twist of lemon.


Might do the new Black Barrel on ice with lemon, but Extra Old gets low ice and no lemon, and 1703 gets neither, otherwise Eclipse, as fantastic as is, is not what I sip; have a bottle of Laphroaig Triple Wood and Oban for such relaxing instances.

The difference is in how much refining you do to it.  Too much, and you may as well be drinking vodka.

Mouser: Bacardi Ocho Años for me, a decent mid-range rum.  Great mix with lemonade/limeade, grapefruit soda, or ginger ale.


The great thing for me is the closest liquor store sells it at the same price as the cheapest Bacardi rums. Good rum, great price. What I really want is some more Flor de Caña. That stuff is awesome. I also make my own spiced rum with the Ocho Años rum. Throw in a bit of a vanilla bean, an inch wide strip of orange zest, a half-stick of cinnamon, and some other spices and let it sit for a couple of days. Much better than any spiced rum you can buy. Or just put it all in a whipped cream dispenser, pressurize it, let it sit a minute, and then release the pressure. Same result much faster. What's really funny is that Kraken spiced rum is a bit expensive but tastes more artifical than Captain Morgan.

Aar1012: Rum is nasty


More for me then.

I tell the girlfriends rum makes me do wicked things. While rum is required on the sailboat, bikini tops are not.

There is almost always a bottle on my boat. Usually Pyrat because people have a habit of giving it to me when I give them a ride.

I thought National Rum Day was yesterday!  Glad it's today because I didn't have any rum yesterday.

I am drinking a Flor De Cana Centenario Gold aged 18 yrs on the rocks for my post-breakfast drink .  I love my good rums and always  have several to choose from.therumhowlerblog.files.wordpress.com

Only if you drink the white shiat. Dark rum is delicious. Goslings Black Seal on the rocks tonight !

Can't forget Bermuda's "national drink": The Rum Swizzle. It features two kinds of rum, and it's all kinds of tasty.

Meyer's or Appleton Estates on the rocks. I'm a simple guy with simple tastes.

Can't really drink the spiced stuff any more. I had one of "those" nights a few years ago and the smell still makes me wince

Make sure you get the real stuff. The mouth of the bottles are coated with sugar when the rum comes from the Bahamas.

The cakes... SQUEE!

Can't we stop submitting "today is ??? day" headlines? They are farking annoying.

How 'bout "tomorrow is ??? day" so that I can prepare?

/btw everything with a marginal alcohol content was called rum by the pirates, even beer made out of piss

That's a good point. I hate coming in to the late shift at work and finding out I missed out on something because it happened that morning and the only announcement was an email 1 hour beforehand.

Actually a good read and it has cocktail recipes. Speaking of which...


MYERS'S PLANTER'S PUNCH
Combine in a shaker...
·         3 Oz OJ
·         Juice of ½ lemon
·         1 ¼ oz Myers's or any dark rum

Add 1 tsp sugar and a dash of grenadine.  Shake well.  Serve in a tall glass with ice.  Add slice of orange and a cherry.


Mojito Popsicles
◦12 mint leaves
◦2 limes
◦3-5 oz rum (depending on how strong you want them)
◦7-10 T simple syrup (to taste)
◦2 C club soda

In a glass, muddle mint leaves (if you don't have a muddler, mash with the handle of a wooden spoon, breaking them up into little pieces). Juice the limes and add to mint. Pour into a bowl or pitcher and add rum and simple syrup to taste. Add club soda on top of everything and slowly stir to combine. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for several hours.

Caramel Crack

6 quarts popped popcorn
1 cup butter
2 cups firmly packed brown (or maple) sugar
½ cup corn syrup, (either light or dark will do)
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 jigger dark rum
(optional pumpkin spice to taste)
Preparation:
Preheat oven to 250°. Oil or spray a large roasting pan with vegetable cooking spray, regular or butter-flavored. Pour popcorn into the pan. In a heavy pan, slowly melt butter; stir in the brown syrup, corn syrup, and salt (and spices, if desired). Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the baking soda, vanilla and rum. Gradually pour the syrup over popcorn, stirring to blend well. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool completely and beak apart.

Not sure what you mean, but my bottle lives in the garage, to be swigged from upon returning home from work, so that I can face the family.   It's amazing how much nicer they are once I've had a mouthful of rum.

Ohhh yeah. Good good stuff. Couple of years ago, Epcot featured it during Flower and Garden Festival. Dole Whip pineapple soft serve with Siesta Key spiced drizzled over it. Any time I have extra scratch to spend, that's what I get now. But cannot wait to see what Saint Augustine Distillery does with their rum that is coming out soon.

That's the opposite of me. My family lives in the garage and my bottle lives in the house.

If your bottle of rum doesn't look like this:
www.thepirateking.com
Then it isn't real rum. It's just some mass produced crap for the sheep with no taste.

In fact, if you didn't pay for it with doubloons (or steal it after broadsiding a merchant ship), it's gutter wash.
 
2014-08-16 02:42:18 PM  
I have enough rum here to knock out a horse,  but nothing to mix it with other than doctor pepper.
