Rum!

I love rum.

I need new ideas, though.

The whole rum 'n coke is getting boring, and even Malibu & coke is too.

I need some suggestions for this weekend - thanks!

Oh, honey, I've had malibu and everything. I'd put it on cornflakes if I had to! Long story short, I can have malibu/coke all night long and just keep a buzz, but no drunkie-drunkie. After 2 glasses of wine, I'm too silly.

I'm looking for plain white rum with something.... (mojito is wonderful, but I've had that too, lately....)

PS - ever tried Grapefruit vodka? Now that's yummy too.

Why not dilute strong flavored rum with vodka or grain alcohol? That might be cheaper. In a mixed drink, you can just use less.

Here's a big hint for you on where to take your love of Rum.

Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum is fermented and aged in oak casks. That's why, if you drink it straight or on the rocks, it has a very earthy aftertaste.

...

Trout fillet, poached in captain and an earthy white wine, placed on a plank of well-cleaned, sanded smooth white oak, service-side up. Put plank and trout in a stone oven and bake. Use a spray bottle to quench the wood if it starts smoking -too- much.

There are a hundred other things I can think of, just off the top of my head, to do with Captain that don't even begin to have anything to do with DRINKING it. :) Captain Spiced is a miracle the Jamaicans granted the rest of the world. See what kind of crazy things you can do with it!

Almost all light brown colored liquor is aged in oak. Oak imparts a vanilla like taste and light brown color. The only reason that regular brandy doesn't taste or smell like wine is that it is aged in oak. Unaged brandy, called, "immature grape brandy," is clear and smells like wine.

Putting spice into rum is a cheat. Technically, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum is a liqueur and not rum. Also, imho, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum is crap.

I like Mount Gay rum with a splash of water myself. Otherwise, not much into rum drinks.
