I drink rum about every other day, about 2 shots each. I don't binge on it by any means. Who says you can't have rum at 10 in the morning?

I have three to five shots of either Mount Gay Sugar Cane, Wray Overproof or 10 Cane chased with Coke (no Pepsi, Coke!) every night. I sleep like a baby and wake right up with the alarm at 7:01 (I give myself an extra minute).

Default Fortnight

I generally drink about 2 ounces of rum every night, but not religiously. There are severally nights that I don't drink at all, and some nights where I make a sizable dent in one of my bottles.

That being said.. I almost wanted to put fortnight, simply because it is such a rare term.

During the week, I will either have a rum punch followed by rum served neat or two glasses of rum by itself. Weekends provide the arena and potential for drinking more rum, but I usually drink more rum by itself than mixed.

During the summer, its hard to sip on a rum, so lots of beer goes down my guzzle. Now its winter time, I'm stocking up on all my rums. Although I must say, I have a few rum and cokes every other night, with the other nights left for a good sipper.

A glass in the evening after work and then whenever i feel like it in the weekend. I never drink too much..or at least not during the weeks. Don`t like to get drunk, just relaxed. To me rum is supposed to be enjoyed slowly for a longer time not just get drunk quick..its the taste that matters.I like both sipping rums and blending rums.

Usually a rum and something before dinner or a glass of wine with dinner, and then a rum neat around 9:00 PM.

Being a shift worker I have an odd schedule. 776 if you know what I mean. Dow Chemical has anounced a .02 alcohol level limit or a pink slip. So I indulge on my days off only. Generally 2 to 3 shots in the early a.m. That is my favorite time. Then 2 to 3 shots in the evening. If you have never awoke early on a cold morning, lit your coleman lantern, put some good bacon on to fry with some biscuits and homemade dewberry jam while sipping some good rum, you are missing out.

daily and repeated each fortnight.

until about three weeks ago, it used to be weekly and only in the summer after racing. the daily at that point was bourbon. but for the last three weeks i've been trying two or four different rums a night.
