Rum and …

Rum, ragerdless of the brand, is one of the few hard alcohols that works well with a variety of different flavors and contents. When talking about the general rum mixture, most people tend to incline towards the obvious rum and Coke.

But when you want taste the exquisit variety of rum and not aim towards the general stereotypes, try one of the favorite renditions, Rum Sour.

The recipe, according to Esquire Magazine‘s immense drink catalog, contains 2-3 ounces of golden rum, 2-3 ounces of lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon of (superfine) sugar. Add a little 151 proof rum give the drink more of a punch, but do not overwhelm it.

In actuallity, the drink is incredibly similar to a Daiquiri, aside from the lemon juice. Drink in a cold martini glass with fruit, preferrably a cherry.
