Thanks for the reminder. I have bottles of Kraken, Pyrat Reserve, Morgan Private Stock, Appleton, etc. ready to go. In honor of rum day.

When you do a shot, tell me. I'll do one.

Rum is the best. As a mixer, on the rocks, neat, shots, etc. So much flavor in the better rums.

Captain and Coke is my favorite drink. I'm about to have one to celebrate rum day. But shots of it make me want to die. I like my shots as girly as possible.

Give me a shot of Jameson and I might throw up. Give me an Irish Car Bomb and I'll put it down no problem.

Have you tried a shot of an aged rum? Much more mellow, sweeter, and smooth.

shots are funny in my experience. i can and do routinely drink gin and bourbon straight out of the bottle but i can't take a shot in a dignified manner to save my life.

the first drink I ever had was a huge dixie cup shot of homemade Rock & Rye whiskey. followed by straight gin the rest of the night. I hate whiskey and gin with a passion now.

lol, I found a bottle of Rock & Rye in my grandparents' basement bar last Christmas. It was probably 40 years old and has some sort of sediment in the bottom of the bottle, but we all had some anyway. Really sweet and syrupy

No clue how old it was but ya it had **** floating in it. As a first ever drink, a bigger than normal shot of whiskey is pretty freaking terrible no matter how much sugar is in it. Though now that we are talking about it, I sort of want to try it again.

Going down like Kool-aid.

Yeah, I used to hate liquor and beer. Then I discovered the good stuff, now I'm called a snob. I have turned almost everyone that I occasionally drink with into one too.

My old roommate is a beer snob so I drank better stuff when I lived with him. It's funny because he used to refuse to drink beer. He would play beer pong with a Smirnoff Ice. Now he has a 4 keg tap system installed in his kitchen for the beer he brews in his basement.

If you're into mixed drinks with rum, try a Pat O'Brien's Hurricane. That'll jack you up.

Shot 2 coming up.

, I would play beer pong with rum because I couldn't drink the swill that they'd put in those cups. I'd like to try out brewing my own, but I need to learn more about it.

Kraken is 94 proof I believe. If you mix that with anything, it'll get you there faster than most.

He started by following really specific recipes. Actually, he started with one of those Mr. Beer kits and it was terrible. But it taught him the basics of what he was doing before he spent the money on the good stuff.

I really want to try Kraken. I've heard all good things. And you get to get drunk and say "release the Kraken!" all night

I love Kraken. Took it to an after-wedding-rehearsal dinner. Everyone loved it. Except my GF who I previously got really sick off of Private Stock.

I bought it for the first time back in June on my trip to Leech Lake, Minnesota. My cousin and I were saying that every few minutes, lol, you can't help it.

Shot 3

This is one of my favorite mixing rums. Nice spicyness, never done a shot before, though. I need to try some of their other more expensive rums, but not many places stock their higher end stuff.
