We tested with Mount Gay rum, made in Barbados since 1703. If you can’t find it, just use your favorite gold or amber rum. Be sure to purchase a good-quality, low-sugar ginger ale, such as Fever-Tree, because the kick of spice works in concert with lime to balance the sweetness.
1/4 cup gold rum (such as Mount Gay)
2/3 cup pineapple-coconut juice (such as R. W. Knudsen)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
6 tablespoons ginger ale
Fresh lime or pineapple slices (optional)
