Taste of the Rum Bible: Castaway

If you’re stranded on a desert isle, this would be the cocktail you’d want to have with you. Well, this and water and a tent, food and clothing supplies and a scheduled cruise ship pick-up.

Rum Cocktail the Castaway
Castaway

CASTAWAY

2 oz. Dark Rum
1 oz. Banana Liqueur
1 oz. Cream of Coconut

Combine ingredients with ice in cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass.

This drink is taken from the Rum Barrel’s Rum Bible, a rum tome compiling a comprehensive listing of the finest rums in the world.


FUN RUM FACT:
Although some rum is bottled directly from the still, most rum is aged and then blended before it is bottled for consumption.  Once the spirit is bottled, the aging process is arrested and little change occurs.
