The True Cuba' Libre- muddle 1/2 lime, 2 oz of Goslings Rum (Mt. Gay works too), shake, pour into short highball glass add just enough Coke to fill to top (less is better).
for anyone that does not know how to muddle: cut citrus half into quarters put into 16 oz glass with ice, mash with wooden muddler, strain into drink glass...adds the taste of the peel

I cut my Captains rum usually with a bit of Jamesons just cause I'm Irish and like it that way.

Bought some Goslings black seal yesterday. It's good. Not quite as smooth as Cockspur, but I like it.

Prefer Captain Morgan Special Reserve. So if you're thinking of a gift...

I can't afford the stuff. So Cruzan is my drink. Straight. But I only drink it for the flavor - but I like lots and lots of flavor.

I think I'll have some flavor right now.

There are a lot of good rums out there, most are lower in price in the Carribean because of the stateside alcohol tax. I am old enough to remember when "Gay" meant happy, so I have no silly predjudice against Mt Gay. No, I don't drink Mt Gay with Coke. Coke, whether regular or diet, has enough phosphoric acid in it that it does a good job cleaning the bugs off your car's windshield, and IMHO that's all it is good for. Be sure to rinse with plenty of water, because it will also take off the paint! Captain Morgan, and all other spiced rums, are great for those of you who don't like the taste of rum, but if you put the right spices in it, some of those folks would drink spiced diesel fuel. It probably tastes better! Black seal is my choice, when I can find it. Off the boat, I am more likely to drink single malt scotch!

Me jug be empty! i'll have to make a run tomorrow. till then i will share this

As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria. In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli) - bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (Rum or tequila, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.
Remember: Water = Poop, Rum = Health.
Therefore, it's better to drink rum and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of $hlt.
