    I found this one, it sounds pretty good -

    Cruzan Rum Breeze
    1 part Cruzan Black Cherry Rum
    1 part Cruzan Light Rum
    2 parts pineapple juice
    Splash of ginger ale

    Build over rocks in a highball.
    Garnish with a lime twist!


    I bet it would be good as a simple rum and coke, too. Cherry Coke with a kick.

    I don't have a recipe, but I'd experiment with proportions and mix it with Godiva dark chocolate liquor and Amaretto di Saronno (or creme de cacao and any almond liquor), shake with cracked or shaved ice, and create a chocolate-covered-cherry "martini."

    All of those sound good! I think my experimenting may make me a lush this week.

    waywyrd, I tried it with Coke tonight. Oh my! Good stuff!

    I use pineapple rum in my Mojitos. I was torn the other day though when I went to pick up a new bottle, they also had key lime rum which I hadn't seen before. I'll have to try that next time. More yay for going sailin' with the Captain.

    Aye Aye! Have you ever tried cherry vodka? I love that in my diet coke. When it comes to mixing drinks I'm a bit of a wuss, usually it is some form of soda with flavored alcohol or something involving a blender and whatever happens to be in my fridge at the time.

    I've never had a mojito, they sound good though.

    Boy does this bring back memories from HS when we mixed Sloe Gin with coke. Tasted like a cherry coke. I can't take overly sweet or fruity drinks these days. Although I did have a couple Cape Cods tonight.

    Ewww. I got really sick on sloe gin once and haven't been able to drink it since.

    My big sister "loved" sloe gin in high school-got sloppy drunk once and never had it after that. I have to say after seeing her, I never enjoyed it myself.

The problem is I don't like tonic. I've been drinking the gin a little with club soda and lime juice and a wedge of lime. That's not bad. Any other gin drinks that don't involve tonic?
    I drink sweet & sour gin & juice (I don't know if that's a real name or just one my mom made up). You mix 1 part lemon-lime soda, 1 part lemonade (not soda, the good stuff with pulp), and 1/2 part gin. It's great for summer.

    Sounds like something similar to a Collins -- yummy grown-up lemonade!
