Rum Collins

3/4 to 1 oz. lemon juice
1/4 to 3/4 oz. sugar syrup
2 oz. dark rum
Stemmed cherry
Lemon slice

Stir first three ingredients well with ice in a collins glass. Fill with soda and garnish with the cherry and lemon slice.

Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva dark rum. Totally yum! I’ve really come to love aged rum and this is an excellent vehicle for it. I knew it would be good because I’ve yet to meet a member of the Collins clan that I didn’t like (see Captain, Sandy, Colonel, Mike, Pierre, and Pisco). Sadly, like the Pisco version, this dark rum version doesn’t have a nifty given name. This rum collins is slightly coconutty, which seems to happen fairly often with dark rum, with a good sweet/tart balance.

Auf dich! (German)
