Hi guys, I'm new to the

Hi guys, I'm new to the Kindred Cocktials process and this is actually my first ever comment on a recipe so please be nice.
I'am currently a 20 year old bartender from Perth, Australia and have been in the industry for nearly 2 years now.
I found this website as part of univeristy assignment where I to record my contibutions within a specific online community, so I chose KC.

I found this recipe whilst i was searching the datebase and decided to try it before a night out last thursday.
I have always been a big fan of rum and rum cocktails so really enjoyed this! I was suprised to taste how well the creme de cacao and that chocolate flavour worked which the rum and lime juice especially.

Just wondering what the thoughts would be on using a Light Spiced Rum instead of the Anejo?

Overall great recipe and would make/drink again!

Hello Rafe,

Welcome.

I see no reason why a light spiced rum wouldn't work. Obviously the cacao pairs well with the rich caramel and cocoa you get in an aged rum, but it should pair with the cinnamon/clove of an infused rum as well. Try it and let us know.
