    Find some pursers painkiller mix and use it with that. painkillers usually 4 parts pineapple 1 part orange juice 1 part coconut creme and rum to suit your taste. Mix will hide the taste of the rum. used to be cruzan was the cheapest stuff sold in the islands (1965 ish) about 1.00$ per quart. That was before it became a tourist trap at st Thomas.

    I tried mixing it in a Margaretta but that tasted bad too . My wife couldn`t find this around here so she had it shipped Fed ex across the country from Washington State to NJ where her friend says they can`t keep it in stock as people are buying it by the case . Must be some hard up low lifes there if thats what they want for a drink or maybe I`m missing something .

    Not worth the trouble or the taste . May end up as a marinade or simply dump it down the drain . My wifes friend said she was sorry for suggesting it to her for me ?? But as she says , they like it out in Washington State ?? Any other suggestions for making a drink ?? I usually drink Whiskey and Bacardi Gold mixed together but I don`t want to spoil the whiskey with this .

    Haven't heard the word "Champipple" for a long time. 1/2 cheap champaign and 1/2 Ripple. Yum.
