One of the great attributes of the season is the resonance of rum, which captures all the languid heat and dreaming quality of the days.
When James Bond walked into history in Casino Royale he asked for Mount Gay Rum and soda. That says it all.
Mount Gay is sweet and smokey, but not too sweet. It’s a preferred drink of sailors of all stripes, a nod to the beverage that was the backbone of British Navy for centuries.
And now we will consider the Mojito.
For there is also a place in our hearts for light rum
For fresh mint is heady and clarifying
For the sparkling is sparking indeed
