Kosher-for-Passover Coke is made with sugar -- not corn syrup -- just like in the old days... if you've got a grocery store in a Jewish neighborhood ~ take a look! here in seattle, some of the QFCs and Albertsons carry it.

I think you'll find that a lot of stores in communities along the border carry sugar cane Coke.

Aloha amigos! I am having so much fun reading all your "gringo loco" adventures to get some Cuban Rum. As a matter of fact, I am drinking some of the precious nectar right now... In Mexico City, "En las rocas" of course... So, any new legislation on the subject? It is amazing that in this day and age, there is still prohibitions like this... In a way, I kinda like it... remnants of the old world... pre globalized and boring. O.K. back to my drink, cheers!

Greetings Zeta:
Sure, the Cuban Embargo makes no sense, and like any other useless or stupid law makes any law abiding citizen perhaps a little less likely to respect the rule of law in general.

But on the positive side as an citizen of the U.S. when I have occasion to enjoy some Havana Club, the combination of a fine rum and forbidden fruit make for a most enjoyable beverage!

Part of the selection of rums they sell in most liquor stores.

Every time you drink it for some reason you lift your leg. Hydrants beware.

You can get Captain Morgan spiced rum here in the states. I think it is extremely sweet...and to me, disgusting. For rum, that is. Now if you like drinking amaretto and stuff like that, then the Captain is for you.

I did like Captain Morgan earlier on...before I tasted demerara. Now, no more Captain.

In case you missed the "rolling eyes" emoticon, I was being sarcastic about Captain Morgan. Cheers!
