I didn’t want to be outdone with only one variation – so number two the Caribbean Mule.  Sounds interesting, trade rum for the vodka and add some bitters and see what happens!

  • 2.25 ounces of light rum (Bacardi)
  • 0.75 ounce dark rum (Myers)
  • 0.75 ounce lime juice
  • 3 dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • 3 ounces of ginger beer

Mix together in a tall collins glass, stir and serve.

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • First taste is the dark rum, thick taste of raw sugar cane.  The lime is in the background, and the finish is all ginger beer, but the sweetness is cut by the bitters.
  • I have never tasted a drink like this, rum and ginger is a fine combination.
  • Not as smooth and light as the original, but a great flavor all its own.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 8/10
  • Strength: 6/10
  • Sweetness: 5/10
  • A great alternative to the original, although not my first choice.
