Default How Regularly Do You Drink Rum?

I like to drink every day. During the week this is a couple of glasses after work and at the weekends whenever the mood takes me.

Some people have suggested that this is too regularly, but as I have no compulsion to drink at times other than when I am relaxing or enjoying myself I don't have problem with it!

I also think that it is better to drink like that than these binge-drinkers who drink themselves into a stupor every Friday and Saturday night!

So, how regularly do you like to drink rum?

I suppose the next question should be "and how much?!"

There are other spirits that I enjoy beyond rum.

Depending on the mood, I may be having a scotch, tequila, port, or rum.
I would say at least once a week, sometimes more

I drink rum about 3-5 times a week but I usually only have one drink each of those times. I also agree that given equal amounts of alcohol it is healthier to spread it out than to binge.

It depends for me.

Lately I've had a few fingers roughly every other night.

Sometimes I'll go weeks without any drinks at all, other times I'll enjoy a nice port or even a beer instead of rum.

I enjoy a measure of rum every night. Sometimes a rum and ginger or rum and tonic, or neat or over ice, with a good cigar when I have an hour. Just one drink though, but on the weekends I may have a Ti Punch in the afternoon, and a drink or 2 in the evening. I always practice moderation. With a cigar though, sometimes I will switch to port, cognac or a single malt.

I usually have a drink about every other night...it is a nice way to unwind after a difficult day of work. I make sure I keep it in moderation.

I usually have one or two drinks most evenings after work and perhaps more on my days off. Rum neat or with tonic is my first choice, but I also enjoy beer, wine, and other spirits. I work in liquor retail and try to research as widely as possible so that I can speak from experience with customers.

I usually drink rum/whiskey whenever I feel like it. Be it on the weekday or weekend. No matter what the time is.

Some people think it is some kind of a taboo to drink on a week night after work. The same people have suggested that I have a problem if I drink on the week but if I drink on the weekend they don't see it as a problem. I always tell them that it is they who have the problem and not me since I do not feel compelled to drink and I do not get intoxicated on the week. It is the same people who say its too early to be drinking beer if they catch you doing it at a time they don't approve. Hell, the captain offered me ouzo at 10 in the morning in Greece when I was on a boat trip! I didn't find it disturbing at all, quite the contrary .

Depends on the week, but I typically make myself at least one Ti' Punch, Dark & Stormy, or Acapulco.
