I just mix coconut rum (Bicardi, not the half strength Malibu stuff) with pineapple for a quick shot of Vit.C and Vit.A(lcohol) one one glass. Coconut rum is also a great addition to pineapple upside down cakes.

oh man....that reminds me of where I used to work. Lady would make rum cake for the holiday party. Basically, she'd bake a cake and just before the party pour an entire 750ml bottle of bacardi over it. That stuff was awesome.

Drank more than my share of this back in the sailboat racing days. We had one boat in the fleet that would make it by the gallon if we would bring the rum and other ingredients. Sail by between races and get refills.

The saying is: 1 part sour, 2 parts sweet, 3 parts strong and 4 parts weak.
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups grenadine syrup
  • 2 cups Jamaican white rum
  • 1 cup light rum
  • 2 cups fresh pineapple juice
  • 2 cups fresh orange juice
  • Pinch freshly grated nutmeg, optional
  • Orange slices, for garnish
  • Pineapple slices, for garnish
Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher or punch bowl. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving. Garnish with orange or pineapple slices.

We made onboard in a big plastic water cooler. Did not add the fruit slices. Served it over ice.

There was one regatta where I froze bananas, and used sliced frozen banana instead of ice for my rum punch. That was my breakfast most mornings. Drink the punch then eat the banana slices.

Sounds good. What is the difference between white rum and light rum? I thought those were the same.

I'd like to know too.. I was under the illusion white rum is a form of light rum... just like silver.

Well, this thread cuts right next to my liver. My rum-snob commandments...
-no Bacardi...ever. Life is too short to drink bad rum.
-Find a good aged rum, add one ice cube, sip slowly and enjoy.
-Ron Zacapa, yes it is that good - and if you mix it with anything, prepare to have a giant facepalm put in your mailbox.
-A close second place is ron pampero aniversario rum. It comes in a neat little leather sack. Great and cheaper than Zacapa at ~$30 for a fifth.
-For mixing, you can't go wrong with the Cruzan brand. Cheap, but a really good flavor and has none of the "i just drank lighter fluid with some caramel added" like Bacardi. And from experience, they must distill it in a good way, because the hangover cogener potential is much lower versus other cheap dark rums.
-Other good dark rums...Ron Matusalem, El Dorado, Vizcaya, Flor de Cana, Diplomatico Reserva or Presidente.
