TDN RUM DRINKS

Rum is my favorite spirit and i wish not just my drinks would have attended this TDN but me too. Amazingly enough i have now managed to miss out on 2 rum TDNs and 2 rum chats!

I have liked rum for many years and oddly enough one of my earlier rums was the 15 year old El Dorado which i the first time i tried it got in a mini bottle. And as that bottle quickly was finished a big bottle soon followed, and this rum also was a rum i used along with Cruzan and their flavored rums during my early experimentations with tropical style drinks before i even knew what a tiki drink was.

After that i discovered the Ministry of Rum and that´s where i started to really seriously learn something about rum along with much tasting and mixing and a lot of what i know today i have learnt in that forum.

My three TDN rum drinks were these, i`m not sure if any one of them did make  it into the TDN except for the Vanilla treat. Anyway the other drinks here are a twist of the Mai Tai and a Planter´s Punch style drink. I hope some of the drinks will inspire somebody to try it out or maybe make a twist of it.
