I don't have Scarlet Ibis, so

I don't have Scarlet Ibis, so I tried making this with a bottle of Zaya that I am regretting having bought (the only Trinidad rum I have.) The overwhelming vanilla flavor made this drink cloying. So if you have a recent vintage bottle of Zaya, I wouldn't try it in this drink. In fact, I'm not sure what I'd try it in.
