Look, I drink.
And I think to myself, there are plenty of others here on D-Toid that do the same. I thought, wouldn't it be nice to share some sophisticated drink recipes with fellow adults? Coonskin and Bones
Thanks to Coonskin for naming the character I had in my post last night
. Because of his win last night, Coonskin gets the honor of having a drink named after him.
Tonight's recipe is simple compared to the last couple of ones that I've done. But nonetheless should be a staple in your bartending book. It's pretty much a rum and coke with a twist, though its a great recipe if you're trying to watch how many empty calories you intake.
The basic recipe is:
3 Oz Spice Rum
7 1/2 Oz Diet Soda
1/2 Oz Lime Juice
You don't even need a special glass or any special tools to make this one. I'll teach you a little trick though I learned when I was 8, making Rum and Coke's for my old man. When you're trying to figure out how much alcohol to add and you don't have a measuring device, use your fingers as a height guide. 3 Oz = 3 fingers, do like your making a boy scout salute and put them next to your glass horizontally pour til it reaches the top of your index finger, then bingo you have it measured. Pour your coke on top of the rum and then add the lime and you're finished!
For my preferred recipe:
5 Oz Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum
1 Can Coke Zero
1 Oz Real Lime
The drink should look something like this when finished.
There you have it, Coonskin and Bones! Drink freely with these, I can generally get through 3 or 4 before needing to stop for a while or go relieve myself. Its only 9% alcohol so you'll be ok as long as you don't drink too fast. As always have something to eat before imbibing.

Well, I hope you guys all like it, please let me know what you think!
