I'm talking about primarily rum, with a few modifying ingredients.
Oh, and the rum substitution for the white lady is a rum sidecar or an XYZ, depending on the type of rum (XYZ is dark, rum sidecar is probably generic enough to be either). It's not a bad drink, but I'm looking for drinks that aren't simply a substitution in an existing formula. Yeah I can make a rum version of the white lady/sidecar, a rum crusta, or whatnot, but what's rum's answer to, say, the Bobby Burns? The Corpse Reviver?
Rum just hasn't ever been too popular for developing that genre of cocktail, and it's an injustice. A nice dark rum provides a base just as interesting as a whiskey or brandy, both of which appear far more often.
