    ITYWF a caipirinha is more properly made with cachaça, a bottle of which I fortuitously happen to have in the fridge....

    Ting.

    First though you have to goto the Windies.

    Canarian rum, where it all began, needs nothing else, not even ice. Arreuchas.

    The best rum I've ever had (and I have had a few) is Flor de Cana.

    It even comes in a square bottle so it doesn't roll around in your desk drawer...

    Sorry to revive a slightly old thread but this *is* relevant and may be informative to many (ie as of 20 minutes ago it's news to me).

    Schweppes 1783 muscovado dark spirit mixer

    On a whim I bought a pack of little tins tonight. It's tastes much what you'd expect from the title: fizzy brown sugar. But it's actually pretty good. Definitely not a waste of £2 for 6 little tins and whilst I'm not abandoning ginger beer for good this is probably going to become a regular on board. Trying recommended...

    Ah! A drink. I thought it was going to be ice cream, and my answer would have been Rum and Raisin

    Enjoying a dark and stormy as I read this. My whole village (nearly) are drinking gallons of the stuff after we introduced it at various BBQ’S and parties. Need’s fiery ginger beer and lots of ice.

    Other favourite options are any fruit juice, pink lemonade, hot chocolate or coffee.

    I think the rum part of 'rum, sodomy and the lash' is discouraged these days.

    Father in law from my first wife was an ex navy Chief Petty Officer who had served through both world wars and had taken his share of the rum ration. He lived in Scotland after retirement from the navy, working as a civilian at naval bases, and drunk rum and pep with a pint of heavy chaser (or was it the other way round?). It seems to be very much a lowland Scottish thing as any pub there seemed to understand an order for rum and pep, but elsewhere it seems little known.

    Shrub. Traditional down here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrub_(drink).
    However, Dark n Stormy is my preference, pint at a time, good ginger beer essential. Pint glass full of crushed ice which I get from the fishermen's cold room, so in the end two alcoholic drinks but lots of volume and some water.

    +1 to that!

    They now sell it in wetherspoons of all places.

    Doesn't taste as good as it does in the Caribbean sun. But it's still good
