Classic song, but is it a classic drink?

Over-rated? Under-rated?

For Posers or Purists?

My questions are these: What in your opinion is the best rum for a rum and coke? Also what ratio do you normally use? Or does it matter, meaning does Coca-Cola negate a rums overall pure taste?

Right now I find Captain Morgan's Private Reserve to be a nice mix with Coca-Cola.

Rum and coke? Add some fresh squeezed lime and turn it into a Cuba Libre.

I personally have never acquired a taste for rum & coke. Can't pin down why. Maybe it was from my younger days when cheap rot gut was all we could afford to dump in the drink. I may have to try it again and do a bit of a taste test with some quality rum. Also this is a stupid question but do you put the coke in the drink first or the rum? I've always done booze first and the other ingredients second for my cocktails unless the cocktail requires a float of course.

If you put the rum in first, then the coke, the process of pouring the coke will mix the drink pretty well. This keeps you from having to stir the drink for more than a real quick turn allowing you to keep as much of the fizzy as possible.


And Rum and Pepsi is good if you use a heavier or spicier rum.

My personal favorite, Rum and Dr. Pepper. I use a light rum like Cruzan to allow the 23 flavor profile of the Dr Pepper stand out while still drinking an adult(erated) beverage.

The type of Coke can make a huge difference, Mexican-made Coke blends very well with rum since it's made from pure cane sugar rather than corn syrup. I'm curious about how Dublin Dr. Pepper would mix. Here's a recent NYT article on the Mexican Coke Cult: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/10/11/magazine/11fob-consumed-t.html

Mexican Coke, Havana Club, fresh lime juice. Once you've had a Cuba Libre the way it's supposed to be, you'll understand why it was popular in the first place.

I put them in a shaker and shake really hard.

I second that and follow the measurements on the back label of HC Anejo Especial.
Israeli Coke is also made of sugar cane. I wonder about other parts of the world. Any other international members reading this thread?
