Rum Cobbler, Rum Collins, Rum Cooler

These next three cocktails are all pretty similar, so I'm posting them together.

The first is the Rum Cobbler. Not a whole lot to say here--rum, sugar, club soda. The Rum Cooler is just about the exact same thing. The main differences are the kind of ice and garnishes.

Recipe:
1 tsp sugar or simple syrup
2 oz club soda
2 oz light rum (Bacardi Superior)

In a goblet, dissolve sugar in club soda, and fill with shaved ice. Add rum and stir. Garnish with fruits and serve with a straw.



The Rum Cooler is very similar but with cubes instead of shaved ice, which leads to a drink slightly less cold, but very similar in taste. I did have some fun making the really loooong orange peel spiral, showering the glass in orange oil in the process. So my Rum Cooler was distinctly orangey.

Recipe:
.5 tsp sugar or simple syrup
2 oz club soda
2 oz light rum (Bacardi Superior)
Club soda or ginger ale

In a collins glass, dissolve the sugar in the club soda. Add ice and rum. Top with club soda and stir. Garnish with a spiral of lemon or orange peel.




The Rum Collins is the same thing but with some lime juice added, which vastly improves things. Rum loves lime, and I love rum with lime.

Recipe:
1 oz lime juice
1 tsp sugar or simple syrup
2 oz light rum (Bacardi Superior)
Club soda

Shake all ingredients except club soda with ice and strain into a collins glass. Add ice, fill with club soda, and stir. Garnish with lemon and a marashino cherry.

Hey Jen! I wanted to let you know that I recently put together a website for cocktail lovers. The idea is "put in the bottles you have in your bar, and find out the cocktails you can mix". I'd love to hear your thoughts about it! Any feedback you may have would be super-useful - I'd love to make the site super-useful for the community.

The site is http://www.cocktailbuilder.com

Cheers!

I would like to invite you to join a web conference of drink bloggers: Drink. Blog. Talk 2007. It will be held between September 22 and 29, 2007 and anybody who blogs about alcoholic drink is invited to take part. I have not been able to find a contact email on your site so, if you are interested, please contact me at japanesewhisky at gmail.com and I will send you out an invite. If you want to find out more about who I am, I blog at Nonjatta.blogspot.com about Japanese whisky. The idea for the conference came out of a discussion between myself, Kevin Erskine (of Scotchblog.com) and Jeffrey Morgenthaler (of JeffreyMorgenthaler.com) on a thread at Kevin's blog. I hope you will be able to take part.

All these three cocktails look great. The making of all three cocktails are more or less equal and less time consuming . All these cocktails are perfect for hot summer evening.I like to spend my evening drinking these cocktails with cigars. I prefer to Buy Cigars online.

The humor works brilliantly, and the animation is much better than I Had imagined. The way you have "blended" (hehe) it all together Makes this look like a solid, whole product, as good as Any Pixar shorts. Probably better. Goal then again: That's my opinion.

For example, the process always begins when energy from light is absorbed by proteins called photosynthetic reaction centers that contain chlorophylls. In plants, these proteins are held inside organelles called chloroplasts, while in bacteria they are embedded in the plasma membrane.
