Rum and rum?

OK, so I poured myself a rum and coke, or two… Dinner time rolled around. We decided on spaghetti. I figured I would have another drink with dinner. It didn’t seem like a big deal at the time… Until I poured it. I poured rum in my glass. I threw a couple of ice cubes in the glass. I poured the coke in my glass. Then I noticed that the color of the beveridge in question was amber. Very amber. Not very dark at all… The drink looked suspiciously like pure rum. In fact, it was pure rum. What? Oh, crap. That’s a TALL glass of rum with a couple of ice cubes. After about two seconds of wistfully pondering a tall glass of rum, I opted for sanity and poured half of it into another glass to save for another day, and replaced the rum with the heretofore missing coke. Still a potent concoction, but one that is eminently more survivable. No more for me. After this one 😉
