Default Best Spiced Rum Cocktail?

Based on the recommendations on this forum, I picked up a bottle of Foursquare Spiced Rum, and I'm looking forward to trying it. What are your suggestions for a great mixed drink using this rum?

You're lucky to have found a bottle of Foursquare. I'd mix it with some ginger beer, but look for one without high fructose corn syrup sweetener.

Very lucky. I didn't think you could even get it in the US anymore.

Personally, I'd put an ice cube or two in a glass, pour the rum and enjoy!

But that's just me. Ginger beer is great, the ones with cane sugar are much better. I've enjoyed Boylan's Cane Cola and spiced rum as well.

Funny...I was going to suggest a classic Cuba Libre (with some sugar cane cola)!

That is how I am enjoying my Foursquare right now!!!

I would have to say Four Square was some awesome rum. I wouldn't bother mixing it either.

Please let me know where you found it......may have to make a road trip or get on a boat.

Enjpy it.

I tried it on the rocks, and it was fantastic. This is the first spiced rum I have sipped, and after the initial rum taste, the second wave of spices was certainly a pleasant surprise. Next, I'll try it in a Cubra Libra. I also think it might be great with coconut water. Thanks for the suggestions.
