I can rarely keep up with the big kids when we go out drinking. Especially not the likes of Paul McFadyen at IP Bartenders or Jake Burger at Portobello Star or Ricki Brodrick at Trailer Happiness with their years of professional training.

Sampling small amounts of many fine spirits neat leaves me mindful of the power of the spirit, but tossing back a few well mixed zombies or killer punches can put me over the line with ease.
This is serious business Rob. I'm in training so when we come to Miami in May we can tear up big pieces to take home with us!

I too, now that I have an appreciation for finer spirits, drink far less than I used to. Gone are the days of the $14, 1.75 liter plastic bottles of vodka. It's quality over quantity at this point. I'm also running a rum deficit: I import more rum into my home than empty bottles I export to the recycling bins.

Now that eggnog is no longer available, my rum drinking is one or two in the evening from my sipping stock. Haven't mixed since the holidays.

I used to drink quite rarely for no other reason than because I just didn't really feel a need or desire to drink, but in the past few weeks, I've found that a drink in the evening is quite relaxing and enjoyable and puts me into a happy mood. Therefore, I had to select "daily" in the poll.

Sipping rum is a pass-time I treasure.

Im a daily man myself edge, and I see no harm in that. The trick is to one a day, or a few extra on the weekend. I think its better for you than going out and getting tanked once a week or month even.

I usually save my Rum drinking for when I can enjoy it. Like winding down from a long day. But usually I save it for the weekend.

I would have to say that I enjoy a drink most everyday. Most likely a glass of wine with dinner or a nice neat rum to end the day.

Default Take pride in the evening tradition

An evening cocktail has been a cherished tradition for me handed down from my father. I have learned that enjoying a fine rum in a nice crystal glass is a wonderful, old fashion way to wind down afer a long day. While I realize those concerned about being politically correct will shudder at the above, when you apply maturity and standards of quality you will find great pride in the tradition. Nothing beats a Single Barrel Cruzan Rum over ice in a crystal glass. Take pride in the evening tradition.
