i am new to this board...as many other visitors, i also post at the cruising world bbs. i race sailboats and also sail in performance sailing mode our own sailboat or crew with friends. originally from Puerto Rico, now Tampa Fl is home. We have a Lippincott 30. Our son races in the optimist fleet.
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.
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
