Daddy Drinks: Rum and Coke


" Thirsty ", originally uploaded by dibec

First of all, belligerent frat boys may insist that this drink is properly called a "Captain" and Coke. They are mistaken. If you've never tasted a sample of Sailor Jerry's Spiced Navy Rum, then you don't know what you're missing. Time to graduate to a real rum.

Sailor Jerry is an authentic Caribbean-style spiced rum with a 96 proof kick and just a hint of vanilla and cherry. After one sip of this rum, you'll say, "Captain who?" If your love of drinking is exceeded only by your passion for tattoos, then you will also appreciate the packaging on this fine product, tastefully decorated with old-school flash art by the master himself.

Fill a glass with ice and pour in your base of Sailor Jerry. Add Coke. Do not drown out the rum with soda! If you're drinking a premium rum, as you should be, then you want to be able to taste it. I recommend a ratio of 1 part rum to 3 parts Coke. Stir and garnish with lime.

I have Captain Morgan's... will have to try Sailor Jerry's next time, or you can provide me with a shot sometime.

Come on over and I'll hook you up.

I'm unduly harsh on the Captain here, but I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the difference in flavor.

Captain and Coke has an amazing taste. I tried the Sailors this weekend and no doubt it was good, but it did not have the same taste. I followed it by Meyer's rum, which is also very nice and smooth rum. I do not destroy the taste with coke, but rather on the rocks. Good stuff. Thanks for using my photo. ;)
