Rum and Coke Drinks
Rum and Coke How-to
Rum and Coke is one of the most popular cocktail drinks. However, some people are unsure how to go about mixing a rum and Coke. To be honest, it is basically just a matter of taste. Dark rum is best. I would recommend either Captain Morgan or Bacardi rum for the smoothest cocktail drink.

Rum goes well with lots of soft drinks and there are many types of rum.
If you're not a big fan of Coca Cola, try rum with Dr. Pepper instead of rum and Coke- tastes smooth and delicious. Mountain Dew and root beer are other soda flavors that go great with rum. If you're watching your calories, drink your rum and Coke with Diet Coke.
Of course, there are other variations of rum and Coke. Try coconut rum, diet Vanilla Coke, Cherry Coke, Spiced rum, or Banana rum for different, but delicious rum and Coke flavors.
