Can you recommend a drink recipe for use with a fifth of English Harbour 5 year rum?

Asked by serenade (3779 points ) April 15th, 2012

Drink recipes are bewildering for me, so I need some help. The only stipulation is that it can’t contain coconut milk/flavoring, etc. This will be for a smallish party. It’s a darker rum, but I don’t know much about its characteristics.

A very tasty and refreshing drink for warm weather is a Sangria.

Here is just one example. Google “sangria with rum” and you’ll see lots of others.

Rum and Coke. You can’t beat it.

Easy peasy: Shot of rum in a glass with ice, top with Coke, squeeze in a lime wedge or three. (how lime-y do you like it?)

Cuba Libre!

What about good old fashioned Daiquiris? Blended with fresh fruits, pineapple, strawberries, etc. Oh lord, this is taking me waay back to a rummy night years ago when friends and I mixed rum with fresh plums. OMG! Better buy a big package of adult diapers if you go for the plums. lolol

Pina coladas: rum, creme de coconut, pinapple juice, ice blended. Top with a marischino cherry.

I like a sort of warm spicy drink

Boil some water (a mugfull) and add a stick of cinamon,

Fling in some vanilla (a pod if you have one) extract or essence will do,

A couple of gloves (maybe 5),

A bit of grated ginger(depends on how hot you like it but I never add more than half a tea spoon)

add some apple or orange juice (a carton of) and bring to the boil for a few mins.

Take off the heat, strain into a jug.

Add as much rum as you like (to taste usually) and serve warm.
Its even nice without the rum.

With that particular rum, I’d do:
2 oz English Harbour rum
.5 oz fresh lime juice
.25 St. Elizabeth allspice dram
Serve over ice cubes in a rocks glass.
