I'm clueless as to the type of rum I should use, so, can you suggest something?
Thank you very much
I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. Are you asking about a rum to drink? If you are, then I recommend Mt. Gay Eclipse rum from Barbados. It holds up beautifully in a traditional Caribbean-style rum and tonic or rum and coconut water. If you can't find Mt. Gay, which is a dark rum, then I suggest Cruzan, which is made in the U.S. Virgin Islands -- St. Croix,to be specific -- and don't let anyone try to charge you for an "imported" rum with Cruzan.I always preferred Cruzan light rum to their dark rum. Under no circumstances pour Meyer's dark rum for a drink,except in something terribly fruity such as a Planters Punch.
