Black Friday: Great Day to Change it Around to a Black Rum Friday

     If you are as tired of the mega merchandising media blitz bombarding you with their get something for nothing rantings.  I've got a better idea, lets all stay home and create a great new "Black Rum Day" concoction.

     Why don't you follow suit with me and head into the special place where you create your cocktails and put on that thinking cap and make something new using a black rum.  This should be very fun and the rewards are consumed for a real fun afternoon.

     There are a lot of choices from the very sweet like Cruzan Black Strap abd Gossling Black Seal; the spiced Blacks from Captain Morgan and Kraken; British Navy Rums like Pusser's and Smith and Cross.   Many are available at your local liquor store and perfect for making you "Black Friday" a whole lot more enjoyable rather that banging heads with millions of shoppers in over crowded stores.

     You might want to give this idea try if you are not getting any inspirations standing infront of the bar.

Black Friday Relief

  • 1 1/2 oz. Captain Morgan Black Spiced Rum
  • 1 oz. Siesta Key Toasted Coconut Rum
  • 2 oz. Half and Half
  • 2 dashes of Fee Brothers Old Fashion Bitters
Place all ingredients into a shaker and shake until chilled and strain into an Old Fashion glass or a twelve oz. tumbler filled with fresh ice.  Garnish with a lemon wedge.

    Avoid the Black Friday mess if you can, but if you can't, enjoy the relief when you get home.  ;o)
