Default Creole Shrubb

I haven`t yet been able to try the Creole Shrubb but i get more and more curious about how it tastes.
I keep on wondering how Creole Shrubb would do in a Mai Tai unless its too sweet but that could maybe be balanced by adding some bitters? Then it would of course no longer be a Mai Tai but a variation..that would probably be very tasty!

The Creole is excellent but to my mind doesn't have enough 'poke' to carry a Mai Tai. Bearing in mind we're rather spoilt by having tasted the dwindling original rum.

Everything else is frankly just not quite as good

I've often wondered about using this fine spirit, replacing the Cointreau in a "Rum Sidecar" but haven't found the commitment to find the right rum to go with it...

This is very nice stuff, though a bit over the top for sweetness. I love sweetness, so I do love this, but others might wish to go easy on it.

What would be good to use to mix with it if its so sweet?

I see the Creole Shrubb as a fine drink on the rocks. It's not an orange flavor as pronounced as Cointreau or Santa Teresa Orange Rum Liqueur. It's not exactly subtle orange, but not a bright orange.

I like putting my Creole Shrubb to use in a Rum Manhattan along side Prichards Fine rum, and a dash of that bitter stuff.
