Fine wine with meals, microbrew beer when thirsty and on occasion - Mount Gay with ice is nice along with good friends and a strong anchor or firmly tied to dock . . . otherwise the captain never drinks while under way.
I know . . . playing by the rules is boring, but no sense in being senseless in this crazy world.
After several rumathalons and worn out blenders I have come to the conclusion that a bottle of Ron Zacapa "centenario", straight, is better the way to go.
If that doesn''t work, try this: coco lopez, dark rum, vodka, kahluha, ice cream. I call it a Lagoona. Non fattening, can''t get you drunk, or pregnant.
Here is a true sailors drink: the dark and stormy. Made in places where sailors hang out including Bermuda and Newport, RI. Find yourself a bottle of Goslings Black Seal Rum and some ginger BEER. Not ginger ale or anything else but ginger beer. You can find it in the supermarket usually; its non-alcoholic. There are 2 versions of this: 1. fill a glass with ice, add a measure of Goslings and then fill with Ginger Beer. 2. Fill a glass with ice. Fill it close to the top and then add your measure of Goslings. (Credit to the Candy Store/Clarke Cooke House in Newport for #2) Squeeze and lime, drop it in and enjoy.
Oh, and I almost forgot: Coco Loco.
Chop the top off a drinking coconut, add lime juice, vodka, white rum, white tequila, gin, ice and a few mint leaves crushed. The quality of the boozes isn''t too important and the proportions are what you dare. Add two straws and a good friend. (Or someone you hope to become good friends with)
