Andy has been put in charge of the bar for a work-related fundraiser this weekend. Thing is, the person in charge of the event has informed him he wants to use up a whack of white rum leftover from some event last year. I'm not sure what the dinner menu is, but I do know it's not going to be "themed" to go with white rum.

Any ideas for cocktails that wouldn't be too obnoxiously sweet?

Amy

I would do a warm rum drink to greet everyone coming in from the cold.

Hot buttered rum....I use a friend's recipe that combines softened butter and vanilla ice cream and the spices. You just spoon a dollop into the mug, add rum and hot water....I served it at the Lodge Club at Snowbird when I managed that place and it was a hige hit.

Hot Buttered Rum Mix

1 lb butter softened
1 lb brown sugar
1 lb powdered sugar
1 qt vanilla ice cream
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

Blend together until smooth and keep in freezer.

Pulled a couple of cocktaildb.com:

Hibiscus Cocktail
1 1/2 oz light rum
1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
1/4 oz dry vermouth
1/4 oz grenadine
Shake with icea and strain.
Rum Manhattan
1 1/2 oz light rum
1 oz sweet vermouth
1 dash orange bitters
Stir with ice & strain, add lemon twist.

Floridian Cocktail #2
1 oz gin

Long Island Iced Tea is another option, helps you use up a lot of things!

Amy,

You could make pseudo-caiprinhas ("caiprissima"). As long as you muddle a bunch of limes ahead of time.
