When thinking of a quick and easy cocktail, I often fall back on a simple one-plus drink… Usually my standby, a Makers and Coke. So when flipping through the Tiki drink book I was excited to find a new beverage in this category – the Bombo.

It combines two of my favorite things, rum and sugar! On a more serious note, it’s an ideal sipping drink, especially if you have some quality aged rum on hand as the mixer.

  • 2 ounces Aged rum (Ron Zacapa Soledad Reserva 23)
  • Demerara Syrup

Fill a cocktail shake with ice, pour in the ingredients and stir until chilled. Pour into an ice filled Collins Glass. Garnish with fresh nutmeg.

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • Is a tasty sweet cocktail, the Demerara flavor makes this almost have the flavor of a rum and coke, but it’s cleaner.
  • A good rum is your friend here – don’t waste this drink on your mixing rum!
  • Sweet, short, and ice cold – a good combo.

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 9/10
  • Strength: 8/10
  • Sweetness: 7/10
  • Devilishly simple, delectably good.
