Default How many bottles of rum do you drink yearly?

On average how many bottles of rum do you drink per year? Personally I drink about 85-100 standard 750 ML bottles of rum per year.

About 8+ shots a week (4 drinks) ~ 200ml

52 weeks in a year ~ 10400ml

700ml in a bottle means... 14.85 bottles in a year
750ml in a bottle means... 13.85 bottles in a year

Plus a bit for other occasions when I drink more = 16 bottles a year more or less (more if I have help)!

Yeah, I kind of got the idea you like to drink.

I usually go through three bottles of white rum throughout the summer months. Most of my summery cocktails are an ounce and a half. Hot, winter drinks are an ounce and a half, too, but I do more shipping straight in winter, which is only an ounce for me. I also drink Black Russians in the spring and fall, so no rum there. I'd guess about 6-7 bottles of rum a year.

I am not a systematic drinker, but an occasional and whimsical one. Years ago i used to drink more, but after minor health complications (due to overall unhealthy lifestyle and poor diet), i completely quit drinking. Now that i returned, i drink much lower dosages per serving and sparingly, not daily. Either way, i 've never exceeded the first category at all. For me, it's all about getting in the right mood and having the proper atmosphere. And hey! Since drinking is a social thing mostly, especially nowadays, well this is a field in which i am regretfully lacking, somewhat.
