Piobaire style edit.

Aviation is a very nice sipper. I just finished off my bottle.

An improv drink as part of an ongoing effort I've been occasionally going back to to find or create more rum drinks that aren't tiki or long drinks.

1.5 oz Light Rum
1 oz Apple Juice
.5 oz Lemon Juice
.75 oz Ginger Liqueur
.25 oz Maraschino

Came out really well. The ginger and lemon juice took the edge out of the sweetness, but there's still enough apple juice in there to get some of that note. The ginger is the dominant player here, but everything else contributes and plays together quite nicely, IMO.

Only problem is that I just used my last quarter ounce of Maraschino. I had no idea that I only had drops left, I hadn't used it in a while. So no repeat test tonight.

This whole post is wrong.

Have you tried a Ranglum? What about rhum agricole (Ti Punch)?

Hell of a lot cheaper than CA prices for this.

I'm not sure they ship, but these people do:

Thanks, if it's good I'll buy a few more bottles. I opened that 1973 Armagnac i posted above yesterday, that was tasty.

No, but not quite what I'm looking for. I want drinks that are shaken and served in a cocktail glass, and both of those seem to be rum, lime, and different types of syrup. I'm looking for the rum world's version of a corpse reviver #2. The vast majority of the rum drinks I find are very much in things that are easy to pigeonhole as tropical in one way or another, and while I understand that that's true to rum's origin, I want to figure out ways to use it more broadly, not least because a lot of those drinks, while wonderful in their own right, don't seem quite right outside of summer.

Gulden Draak. Not my cup of beer. Too much liquorice.
La Chouffe blonde. Good.
Tripel karmeliert, Rodenabach Grand Cru. Both very good.

Westmalle Tripel is a personal favorite
