Well, at least it's fall now. (And I can still drink Moscow Mules although I prefer it dark and stormy.)
Can't get any other syrupy dark rum? Even though it's spiced rather than just a straight up dark, Kraken is good in a Dark & Stormy. And yes, I realize that Goslings has that trademarked, I just don't care.
As for me, in tonight's edition of Back to the '50s, I'm having a Continental. The idea randomly came into my head the other day, and I picked up some Creme de Menthe to try it just today. Since good Creme de Menthes don't seem to exist in VA (do they exist at all?), made with Dekuyper. My first thought is that this drink has a lot of food coloring in it. My second is that it whacks you over the head with mint and lime with no real subtlety. 3:1:1 per the recipe in the book I tend to use, though the author of that one isn't always shy about modifying recipes without telling you it's modified. Generally pretty good results, but I'm going to have to find a way to make this drink better somehow.
