Looking for Dark Rum Drink Recipes

edited June 2012 in EggHead Forum
Picked up a bottle of Meyer's the other day for a food recipe. Now that I have it, looking for some drink ideas. Don't really want to go out and buy a bunch  more liquor to just make a drink or two and then will sit around the house.. Something tropical maybe. With pineapple juice....

  • Load up glass with ice.  Fill half with dark rum other half with ginger beer = dark & stormy

    You can't go wrong with the Bahama Mama!  2 oz. dark rum, 2 oz. coconut rum, 2 oz. grenadine syrup, 2 oz. pineapple juice, 2 oz. orange juice, and lots of crushed ice.  Be careful though, you think you are drinking kool aid and then after a couple of these it opens up sum whoopass on you!

    And don't worry about the liquor sitting around the house, my prediction is you will be going back for more ingredients after you've squeezed the last drops from the bottles.  Garnish with fresh pineapple or an orange slice, or both.

    Not familiar with ginger beer. Can you recommend a brand or two?

  • They've all tasted the same to me.  Pretty much every grocery store carries it in their ethnic food section.

    Miss Emily's on Treasure Cay in The Abacaos, Bahamas makes the Goombay Smash:
    One part each:
    Pineapple Rum
    Coconut Rum
    Light Rum
    Dark Rum
    Four parts pineapple juice
    One part orange juice
    Juice of one lime
    Grenadine for color
    A few dashes of bitters
    Pour over ice and garnish with cherries and an orange slice. 

    There was a time when it included a raw whipped egg and some CoCo Lopez. There are as many variations on this as there are variants.

    Second the Dark'n'Stormy. Fantastic drink. I'm in Canada so can't give you a ginger beer recommendation but I also just get it any grocery store here.

    Doing this all week in Fl: only use (not from concentrate) small can pineapple and Myers. Also add some coconut milk at times. Will note go back to coke. Hell, this has to be good for you.
