Happy National Rum Day - favorite rum drinks?

Today is National Rum Day, according to Imbibe. So that got me wondering what some favorite rum drinks are of you chowhounds out there. The first three that come to my mind are the Mai Tai, the Hemmingway Daiquri and the Dark 'n' Stormy.

  1. My home made Tia Maria
    Spanish Coffee

    1. Mount Gay with tonic and Dark and Stormies are my preferences. Oh and my SIL's bajan rum punch.

      1. El dorado 12 year neat.

        Painkillers are also awesome, especially with the Pusser's ratio dialed up.

          I like Painkillers a lot, but I'm part of the Pussers boycot so don't use it anymore. I put a Painkiller on the menu in a bar recently using 1.5 oz. of El Dorado dark rum and 1 oz. Coruba Jamaican dark rum. Although I personally like the ratios reversed better, the majority of customers like it a little sweeter from the El Dorado demerara rum.

        2. Mai Tai, Corn and Oil and a simple ol Daiquiri
