    We use dark rum and fresh mint from the garden. Good and strong. Also find that making each glass to order is thee only way. Using a shaker or to attempt a pitcherful...NO!  -  10 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was really good, and I don't generally like alcohol! Couldn't find lemon rum so I made it with lemon liqueur and I enjoyed it.  -  14 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
