Rum enjoyment
Hello all,

This is sort of a follow up to the cans v bottles post. When on the boat what is everyone's favorite way to drink rum? I typically drink mt gay with tonic or gosling's dark and stormy's. I have a few plastic tumblers to avoid breakage but spilling is still an issue. I'll bring beer when fishing, for simplicity but rum is definitely my first choice. What are your thoughts?

I drink Rum with my mouth, but never ever have I drank gay stuff...

Mt. Gay & coke w/lime and ice when it's hot.

Mt. Gay & ice when it's not.

Extra Old Mt. Gay neat for sipping.

A few special rums are decent for sipping and for mixed island-style fruity drinks.

But, in truth, there are no real substitutes for the real thing :-)

You can't beat a Cuba Libre made with Cruzan Single Barrel Rum.

...or straight from the bottle...or anything in between.

Mmmm. Rum.

Anything, neat. I drink for the taste of the rum itself, same with any other beverage.

In order of preference:
Gossling's Dark
Gossling's Dark Reserve
Cruzan Black Strap

All with Coke Zero (offsets the sugar content so a type ii diabetic can get away with it).

I'd rather drink piss than Myers Dark, I just don't like it.
