Barbancourt Pango Rhum Runner

     After a fun weekend with my friends from Rhum Barbancourt, I started thinking of some new ways to use their really nice flavored Pango Rhum.   This is a great 4 year old rum that is blended with macerated Mango and Pineapple.   This can be put into many, many cocktails and put them into a wonderful new dimension. 

     I'm thinking how it can bring a Rhum Runner into a Caribbean world with all the fruitiness of the islands.   After fooling around for a while with some ideas this is what I came up with.  I love the combination of the Mango, which is just starting to fall off of the trees here in Key West and fresh pineapple flavors that always add to a great tropical cocktail.
