El Dorado Golden Rum Cream

     I found an extraordinary Rum Cream in the El Dorado Rum booth during the recent Miami Rum Festival.  This is not just your every day expression, It has the flavor that you have grown to expect from the El Dorado brand of rums.  The creaminess and the flavors just linger and linger long after the rum is gone.   I have just added this rum to our collection at the Rum Bar in Key West, and it is just wonderful.

     I started fooling around with El Dorado Golden Rum Cream the other day and found it to do well with so many of the liqueurs that I have on the shelf.   I tried all of the usual suspects like coffee, chocolate and amaretto, they all blended well with the El Dorado Golden Rum Cream as I was sure that they would.

     I was really looking for something that was different this time.  I tried several things that really clashed, but then I then stumbled on an idea that really works for a fine after dinner cocktail.  I have a rather large supply of Vanilla Rums, something that generally is just vanilla, and I don't give much thought to.  I think I have changed my mind after playing with it and the rum cream.  Give this mix a try, I think that you will find it to be very nice.  This one really is a fine dessert by itself, who needs ice cream?
