Rum--My host used Captain Morgan Parrot Bay Lime Rum because he felt like coconut rum would make it too coconutty. I disagree. I think there is no such thing as too coconutty. I would use my favorite summer drink rum, Malibu Coconut rum. I also think it would be good with a chunk of pineapple and a maricino cherry or two as a garnish. The Cubs glass was a nice touch.
I've been waiting for the Cubs to string together a couple of wins before I shared this post. Needless to say I've been waiting for some time. Drinking helps when you're a Cubs fan.
