After reading everyone's responses, I'm heading out the liquor stores this afternoon to pick up both the Cruzan and El Dorado rum creams. A friend and I are going to spend an evening sampling and comparing. I can't wait.

I'm counting on your feedback to let me know if I should start hunting down some of that Cruzan rum cream that I've never tried. Did someone say it was being discontinued?

I haven't seen it in a few years and I heard that it was going to be discontinued. My guess is that it was one of the casualties of the corporate appetite that consumed Cruzan in the 90s.

It was made with Irish cream, which was expensive and probably didn't meet the corporate standards for mass distribution and profit. I was very good, but I don't think it was better than the El Dorado rum cream which is available today.

There's a Reference to Rum-and-Milk in Dickens's Great Expectations as a breakfast drink, 'taken with a biscuit,' a cookie, of course, the time would be around 1840. That was considered proper for a day's start before taking a walk in the morning air. I'm looking at the recipes and trying to find one that looks good. I don't much like cream liquers, you're asking a lot from the milk in the bottle. I'd rather make it fresh. Not worried too much about the effect of the rum on the milk--I've had rum in eggnog many times.

Best!

i still see the Cruzan, but i have seen a couple of 'hints' it may be going away.
Edward is being kind here though, the El Dorado Rum Cream is FAR SUPERIOR.

And Rum+Kahlua+ Vanilla Ice Cream, is a drink called Moose Milk
