    Remember the rum fate that befell Ben Backstay.

    "By drinking grog I lost my life
    and you my fate could meet
    so never mix your rum me lads
    but always take it neat
    but always take it neat
    but always take it neat!

    Maybe take some care with the Carriacou rums?....sip slowly but stay well clear of any sources of ignition...

    The strangest mixed drink I've heard of is Bovril and sherry which a sailing friend says was very popular with ex pat's in the far East when he was in Rangoon. I don't know the proportions and have never tried it BTW.

    Other favourite options are any fruit juice, pink lemonade, hot chocolate or coffee.
    Served as seperate mixes, hopefully.

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.
    First encountered rum & peppermint on Norfolk Broads, when asking for a Rum & Blackcurrent which was more the norm elsewhere (black rum of course, white rum hadn't been 'invented' back then).

    It has long been traditional to add sherry to consommé.
