Rum, Dark

Jon loves Myer's Jamaican rum and Appleton Estate. Trelawny Rum (much harder to find) was a staple during his Peace Corps years as an affordable but tasty local (to Jamaica) golden rum. Nicaragua's Flor de Ca~a is an amazing rum, especially the 18-year-old variety. Cacique rum from Venezuela is another great (and often affordable!) choice, if you can find it.

Planter's Rum Punch

3 ounces dark Jamaican rum
1 ounce simple syrup
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
3 dashes Angostura bitters

Combine ingredients in a tall glass and fill with crushed ice.

Swizzle with a bar spoon until a frost forms on the outside of the glass.

Garnish with a mint sprig.

Dark and Stormy

Dark and Stormy

Wikipedia has a good writeup of the Dark n Stormy, but it is a classic Caribbean/seafaring drink - dark rum, a bit of lime, and ginger beer (DG brand works best).

In a highball with ice, add in:
The juice of a key lime (and both shells, or the juice of 1/2 of a normal lime and a dash of simple syrup)
2-3 oz dark rum (Myers or Flor de Cana)
If your ginger beer is not sharp enough, consider adding some ginger syrup.
Fill with Ginger Beer to taste.

A slight dash of vanilla can also amp it up.
