• 3/4oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum (thanks Amanda and the Digges!)
  • 1/4oz Grenadine
  • Fill with Coca-Cola

Tried a variant on regular Rum and Coke.  Turns out darker rum does not sit as well as I was hoping; the lighter rum gives a less overpowering rummy flavor.  It’s also possible I didn’t mix enough – darker rums are heavier.  The Grenadine is a classic “cherry coke” method and it worked well here.  Overall, slightly disappointing and a waste of the good rum, honestly.
