Jolly Roger Cocktail 23 Feb 2009
5:19 pm

You KNOW I was excited when I watched this episode!  ;-)  If I may suggest another rum option, Cruzan Single Barrel Estate Rum is more flavorful and aromatic than the standard Cruzan Dark, but not as robust as Blackstrap, and as such you may not have to cut it as much, if at all.  All excellent rums in my opinion, and your Jolly Roger cocktail sounds very enticing - I’ll definitely be making an orange run tomorrow evening!  If you’re ever in the area, there is actually a charter boat company on St. Croix called Jolly Roger that offers snorkeling tours and watersports…  ;-)
As a side note, being a “Cruzan” myself (or as it is more correctly-spelled, “Crucian”), I feel obligated to correct you on its pronunciation:  “KROO-zhan” (emphasis on the first syllable - not sure why everyone I talk to here in the states interprets it as “kroo-ZAN”...)
Thanks for another great episode, keep ‘em coming!  A little more Cruzan Rum wouldn’t hurt either… ;-)
Take care,
