Advantages: The best rum in the world with the best ginger Beer
Disadvantages: Unconciousness is inevitable they taste that good
When I am home I like nothing better than to throw a party usually in the summer months, I fire up a couple of Weber Barbecues one for Seafood the other for T - bones and Ribeye's with my I pod Mojito mix in the background, I am at home in my outdoor bar mixing my favorite cocktails. here are some of my finest.
Sailor Jerrys Crab Cocktail
One large pour of Sailor Jerrys Spiced Caribbean Rum (It must be Jerry's) because you need the hint of vanilla which makes this the smoothest drinking nicest tasting rum out there ( Waitrose) its not the cheapest but its certainly the best. It works with other brands just not as well.
Add the rum to a cocktail Glass. If you are lucky enough to own any Sailor Jerrys did a range featuring some of the Original Sailor Jerry Tattoo artwork, rare collector's item's these days. The semi Nude Hawaiian dancing girls on the tumblers add to the occasion and are a good talking point for those that can still talk when they have had 3 of these .
2 chunks of Ice and squeeze in 2 lime slices (around 1/4 of a lime) top up with Crabbies alcoholic ginger ale. Stir but dont shake and devour.
Outstanding but dont make to many or you will fall over.
If you really must use a rum other than sailors use Mount Gay or Havana Club, but SJ is in a league of its own we did a blind neat tasting at a recent party and everyone thought the SJ was by far the best its the only rum I drink neat.

Sailor Jerrys Pineapple chasers
2 shot glasses

Mojito and Cubra Libre are obviously both very popular, and well covered on here. I prefer Dark Rum in my Mojitos and would recommend any fan of Rum and Coke to use Mount Gay with Pepsi Raw Cola. Slightly Less sweet no additives.
For those who are not rum officianado's the Mojito if made properly doesn't leave you with the usual hangover lots of Vitamin C and spring /soda water keeps you well hydrated I always drink Mojitos in the tropics or the caribbean and wake up feeling fresh.
Lookout for my barbecue recipes coming to Dooyoo soon.
