Over the last few months I have given up drinking beer simply because drinking it leaves me with a two day headache and makes me feel really sick. This has made drinking socially difficult because whenever I’m out I generally only drink wine or beer as I’m not the biggest fan of spirits (ghostly and otherwise).
However rum is a different story, the first time I drank it was a valentines day many many moons ago, my friend Caerwyn (who’s half Jamaican half Welsh) and I went out for drinks. Now given his genetics the man can drink for Europe and rounds consisted of two rum and cokes to every pint!
Ever since that night I have been a huge rum fan (in smaller quantities!). Rum reminds me of good times, good friends and nights I don’t want to end.
Last weekend I went over to my friend Michelles for the first bbq of the year- I brought over a bottle of Captain Morgans spiced (thats my go to rum) and she had a bottle of Mount Gay Rum.
We had to compare them (obviously) and whilst Captain Morgans is spicier Mount Gay is a simple calm before the storm. As in its mellow and complimented the ginger beer we had with it far too well!
Over the summer I will be posting cocktail esque ideas so if you have any suggestions feel free to email.
