Joy Of Cooking: Rum Cocktails

Posted by Trott

I thought I wouldn't like most of the rum cocktails. I figured they would be too tropical and sickly sweet.

As it turns out, my predilection in dry cocktails is for gin; my preference in sweet cocktails is for rum.

My favorite was the daiquiri (light rum, lime juice, simple syrup). Perhaps it was refreshing to have a rum cocktail that didn't have coconut or pineapple in it. Also, perhaps I'm used to having daiquiris frozen and/or flavored, so this seemed a nice change of pace.

Next up: Tequila cocktails.
