White Rums

Whether you call them, clear, silver, white or simple 'see through' how do you drink them?

Default The NEXT mojito

What will be the next mojito? AKA the next big white rum cocktail that will be available at most bars/clubs? Any ideas?

I've been noticing plenty of bars serving up "real daiquiris." I seriously hope this becomes the next white rum trend!

At the last three bars I drank at where I asked what rum cocktails they made, the first two answers were mojito and caipirinha. I'm also going to have to put my money on rum & coke topping the list and I would love to see daiquiris, but for a non-cola cocktail I'm gonna say caipirinha.

ok, ok. It was kind of a tough question. Better stated: What is an old out-dated cocktail that can resurge and renew this summer?

I'm not sure of the out-dated part of the qualification. The daiquiri has lost favor due to the way most daiquiris are currently being made. A good daiquiri is a great drink when made with good ingredients and, of course, good rum.

rumdog007 is probably right, though I am quietly loathe to admit it, more rum and cokes are probably going to be sold this summer, but then more were probably sold last summer as well.

Another drink that is gaining popularity is the simple 'ti punch, but there again, you need to have good rum and real sugar cane syrup to make a good one, and it doesn't require any muddling in spite of the theater than can be bestowed on its making. I believe the truth is that neither of these drinks will outsell rum and cokes. But if you're looking simply to sell the most drinks, you'll be pouring vodka and the latest energy drink.

Rum Julep would be nice for the summer. Maybe I'm still a bit biased by my time in New Orleans.

Nice one Gray.

Now if we're talking cocktails made with aged rums, the old fashioned has to be near the top of the list, sharing that position with another New Orleans favorite the Sazerac, made with aged rum.

I'd be a happy man with a nice Sazerac right about now.

I had a great Rum Old Fashioned this past weekend though. I used to make them for one of our customers when I worked in San Francisco and suddenly had a craving on Saturday.

Have you ever watched Chris McMillan make the Sazerac (with rye) on YouTube?

And, if you want the REAL treat watch his Mint Julep video!
