Try this out.

I went to the store to buy Barritt's ginger beer, but when I saw that it was sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, I passed it up for a 4-pack of Bundaberg (neither of which I have tried). I also had my first ever sip of El Dorado 5 which is a great rum for only $16 or so. The Bundaberg and El Dorado made a good drink together, but was not as strong as I was used to. The 5 and Bundaberg had more subtle flavors that don't hit you in the face; it was a more mild drink with some sweetness and subtle nuances. I think a squeeze of lime would have made it much better, but unfortunately I did not have any on hand.

I have been mixing the MGXO w/ goya giner beer, excellent stuff! I think I found a drink I can't say no too!
