I know very few people who drink any rhum agricole with Coke, and packaged mojito mixes don't do it justice either. I'm not surprised your brother-in-law liked ti punches. If made right it is a great drink.

I used to bring 5 or 6 bottles back to the states with me with I'd visit from the islands and more than 95% of the people who tried this drink liked it and wanted another. Unfortunately I'd run out of rhum too quickly.

I love the ti punch especially with Neisson's.

I experimented with the Depaz just to broaden my horizons....but in the future I will probably only use rhum agricole in ti punches. Ti punch seems to be the only drink that I found that really boosts/compliments the rhum agricole flavour.

Actually the Ti Punch is the best for the agricole..they are made for each other.

But there are other drinks too that are nice with agricole..

I've had a few other drinks made with white rhum agricole that I love, passion fruit, white rhum agricole, a little sugar cane syrup and a squeeze of lime is also very tasty.

A rum Old Fashioned with rhum vieux also hits the spot nicely.

Why not? But if you check the rum recipes you`ll find a few drinks as well that are not Ti Punches.

Accuse me of being partial but I've had a couple of great mojitos made with Martinique sugar cane syrup, Neisson Blanc, fresh mint and a splash of champagne instead of club soda. In cocktails, as in life, it's the little things that make the difference.

Ive always thought that one of the predominant characteristics of agricoles is it's similarity to champagne. Ive recently started to dabble with the two ingredients. Ill post a recipe if I make a winner.

I enjoy the Depaz Blue Cane, and it certainly is different. One of the things that is anjoyable about agricoles is the variations that they have, how each distiller and blender makes thier own mark on thier rhum.
