This information makes me want to take some of my rums and, with an eye dropper, deposit two or three drops of each on a clean plate to evaporate. I wonder how much would be left behind from each as the rum evaporated?

It's not scientific, but it would be very easy to do.

Actually, AceExplorer, that's a great idea for anyone with access to a good lab scale, accurate to one milligram. Weight a piece of filter paper or paper towel, then pour 1 milliliter of test rum onto the paper. Let it absorb, then evaporate, then weigh it again. How many more milligrams (if any) does the paper weigh? That's about how many grams of sugar per liter, for the test rum.

"The rum's the thing..."

Thanks, LimboLizard. So a lab scale is one more thing I "need to buy" for my bar! lol...

Actually, I do use a small digital postal scale when I make my Falernum and other syrups. But that's not good enough for the type of test we're talking about here.

Any other successful recipe tweaks? I've been finding I like the less-sweet tiki drinks in general, so I figure that bodes well for modding others into low carb versions.
