We have tried to Rum Cooler, so why not the Rum Swizzle!  I guess the best way to describe this would be to call it the “Advanced Rum Cooler”, and I have to say after tasting this, it is definitely the better alternative, fixing any of my critiques.  Best of all, this doesn’t need a lot of unique ingredients to upgrade your cooler…

  • 2 ounces dark rum (Myers)
  • 0.5 ounce lemon juice
  • 0.5 ounce triple sec
  • 5-6 ounces of ginger ale
  • lemon wheel

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • Take one part Rum Cooler, add a couple of parts lemon juice and triple sec, and you have the new and improved Rum Swizzle!
  • Drink retains the flavor of the rum, but really softens the flavor, making a much more drinkable beverage, loosing all the harshness.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 8/10
  • Strength: 4/10
  • Sweetness: 5/10
  • Skip the Rum Cooler, this is better.
