Smile Welcome

Welcome to Cruisers Forum Antolin

Yes, we're all new to this board - it's been online for less than 4 weeks so it will become what we make it together.

Safe sailing!

Cool cheers and drinking icons...

hola,

being that i seldom (if ever) drink beer....and being that i am an island boy whose drink of preference is a hearthy rum and coke....we need a new icon designed...one that is as the beer cheering happy faces but holding a rum and coke "Cuba libre". "Cuba Libre" is the name of a rum and coke in Puerto Rico.

be well and thanks for the happy reception

Antolin

rum and coke

hola,

i found this link http://www.webtender.com/db/drink/2202 explaining the rum and coke recipe and preparations using a highball glass, etc. the color of the drink really takes after the coke...if you use dark rum as in Mount Gay then it looks darker...if you use the best clear rum in the world like Don Q Crystal (obviously made in Puerto Rico), then the drink looks less dark and just looks like transparent amber...either way it tastes like mother's milk

be well,

Antolin
