So when Tavis and I were dating and we were over at his parents house for a long weekend, I cringed (not visibly, only on the inside) when his mom brought rum and cokes out to the pool. Trying to make a good impression with his folks, I vowed that no matter how it tasted, I would sip away without making any weird faces.
To my delight, the drinks she served were nothing like the club or concert rum and cokes. They were sweet (not overwhelming sweet), tangy from the lime, and just the right amount of soda. The real secret is the type of rum, Tavis’s mom uses coconut rum.
Tavis and I have started using a mixture of coconut rum and white rum. Here is what you will need:
Key west lime juice
Lime slices for garnish
Fill your glass with ice, add 1 1/2 oz of White Rum, 1 oz of Coconut rum a splash of Key west lime juice.
I will leave you with a few pictures of the fateful day when we were dating…
