The 21 reminds me of the v/x - - -but all grown up.

My problem is i don't believe in better or worse. . . Things work, or they don't. . .
Sometimes, that is the way it goes..
i "generally" prefer 'younger' rums (rhums, ron--etc) so i know what you mean..
There is not a problem with that!
As a search . . .embrace discovery! You can taste so much--with no rules!-- H A V E FUN!!!

It is rum for goodness sake!

Last night i was out and i had an amazingly tasty Rum Drink @ 320 in Seal Beach called the 'Scintillator' (Zaya Rum, Grand Marnier, Absinthe, Bitters. )
If you are in the area-- definitely check that place out!


Today it was simple: Rum and Coffee--6 of them...
Not very exciting-- but there it is..

i started with a Cachaca Sour <or 3.5>, but . . .

i started working on a "Fancy Sour" where the modifying liqueur is Macadamia Liqueur-- and now on my 4th-- i'll say TASTY! When i 'detail' the measurements i'll post it...
oh yeah and i have to name it...

Thursday night-- is alright by me... i'm going in for 5 (Which is actually 9 <8.5> because of the Sours...) so, i got that going for me. . .
