Contrary to what Jack Sparrow may believe, the rum is not always gone. And, if you have some of the spirit on hand, you may be wondering what are the best drinks to mix with your rum.
Let’s start with the obvious. Rum and Coke is an oldie but a goodie. The smooth, sweet flavors of these two come together perfectly. Even if you already figured this out in college.
Pineapple and rum go together almost as well as peanut butter and chocolate. There’s a reason both are in most Tiki cocktails from the Painkiller to the Mai Tai to the Zombie.
If you like piña coladas (and getting caught in the rain), then you probably love the combination of coconut cream and rum.
We know club soda works, and we know Coke works, but how about another kind of soda? Rum pairs perfectly with lemon lime sodas like Sprite.
Coffee goes with almost everything. Now, we know that buttered coffee sounds like bulletproof coffee. But this drink is actually good.
