This was pretty good but I expected to taste more of the spiced rum. We did add more rum to each drink nobody was complaining and the glasses were empty so I'd say it was a success. Read More

This recipe came in my inbox last night (Friday) and it was perfect timing to try because a couple of friends were over for a movie;-) I didn't have root beer and spiced rum on hand but did have cherry cola Bacardi Gold and French vanilla ice cream so gave that a try. YUM! Thank you so much for the fun tasty idea and am now going to experiment with assorted soda and rum flavor combinations and of course with root beer!! Read More
