Rum and Coke JWL

Many, many years ago, when I was stationed in Hawai`i, I was fond of rum and Coke. I'd use Bacardi 151 rum, and I'd substitute Jolt for the Coke. Then one day I was discussing this habit with my two-bit senior chief, and he offered me his recipe for rum and Coke, which I'm going to share with you now.
  • Pour eight ounces of rum into a glass.

  • Show the glass a picture of a bottle of Coke.

  • Drink and enjoy.

I'm not sure what rum he preferred, but I would use Pusser's or Myers's. The real key here, as he pointed out, is in step two: Make sure you only show the glass a picture of a bottle of Coke. If you show it a real bottle, the rum gets diluted too much....

Back in my drinking days, I was quite fond of Captain Morgan's Original Spiced Rum. If the picture of coke is too much, you could always just say "Coke" right before you drink the rum.
