Default Cane Cola

I found this cane cola today, is this the sugar cane coke that it was a thread about floating around somewhere, or was it a similar cola?

I don`t what to mix with it as i donґt like rum and coke..maybe i should just have it with some lime and ice ,it would be interesting to compare it to the standard coke.

Boylan's makes a very good product, though I find all of their flavors are just a little weak for me. I like a little bit more flavor. Jones Soda's Cream Soda, for instance, has a lot more flavor and kicks Boylan's butt - but Boylan's is still pretty darn good.

Their Ginger Ale is now what I drink, since it's the best I've found without taking a much bigger leap in ginger taste (which generally start to fall into the Ginger Beer category). However, I've yet to try a few others that I've heard about, like Vernon's, which are reputed to have a nice ginger bite to them. Alas, there are a few that I just can't find around here. Out of the 12-15 Ginger Ales I can get around here, Boylan's is the best, IMHO.

Two summers ago my better half and I spent a summer in Maine, USA and had the chance to sample a number of soft drinks sweetened with cane sugar as opposed to High Fructose Corn Syrup. This seemed to be the trend in upscale soft drinks. We agree that Boylans and Jones ( from the Tri-State area I believe) are well thought out and worth a try. Black Cherry and Raspberry translated well. Pour a float of a sweet rum on top and I'm not complaining about dessert.

I'm not a rum and coke fan, unless the coke is made with sugar cane sugar and then it's a whole different story.

In my first book I wrote that if you've never tried anything but rum and coke, I'm sorry. I'm going to update that statement in the next edition.

This probably isn't much help but I've enjoyed it with Flor de Cana 12 and 18 year old.

Appleton VX is also on my short list of rums I've enjoyed with cane cola.

I have to give Ed right..

I tried the Cane Cola first with some Havana Club blanco poured on top and it was real refreshing, and then i tried some Appleton White, also very nice. I still don`t like Rum and Coke but i like like Rum and Cane Cola.

Maybe too late, but I've found that Matusalem Gran Reserva makes a very nice "Rum & Coke"

I found Jones Soda yesterday in Florida. Here's the link to their website. These products are made with inverted sugar. I was surprised that these sodas were competitively priced.
