    The Kraken Black Rum

    So, back in March, the bro in law got me a bottle of Kraken black rum for my birthday. Unsurprisingly, as it was my birthday, half the bottle got drunk between us. I've cracked it out again tonight to have a bit over ice, but it's only the second time I've had it. While it's awesome neat, does anyone have any serving suggestions they'd recommend?

    I also feel it mandatory to say "Release the Kraken!"

    When I was in the West Indies, if we drank Black rum it was with lime juice or sprite. Oddly. Nice though

    Freshly squeezed lime juice? Interesting, got some fresh limes in the fridge.

    My favourite drink.

    Loads of ice. Pint glass. 2 parts rum, 1 part dr pepper.

    Seriously try it. Used to be a massive Captain Morgans Spiced drinker until the Kraken swallowed me up...

    I may have to give this a try. I have an unopened bottle of Captain Morgan's [spiced] indoors.

    Coke (not cheap stuff though) makes it taste slightly of toffee...

    I usually go for Pepsi Max. [High caffine and tasty, tasty acesulfame potassium.]

    Coke is boring.

    I'd also recommend a black mojito...

    Also remember, when you've finished it - it's obligatory to stagger around the house stating loudly (in a slight slur) "where has all the rum gone?"...
