Brinley Gold Coffee Rum
It is an excellent substitute for Kahlua and if you look at the myriad of cocktails that use that popular liqueur, you have a great place to begin mixing Brinley Gold Coffee Rum. In fact, one of the company's signature drinks is a Rum Russian that follows this theory exactly - skip the Kahlua of a White Russian and Voila! a delicious drink is born with a little more of a kick than the original. For lovers of a well-made Espresso Martini, this rum can replace the Kahlua (again) in one popular vodka version, or (better yet) pair it with Brinley's Vanilla in a variation I fell in love with at the Bacchus in St. Croix.
Brinley Gold Lime Rum
I did find that the lime rum when served alone takes some getting used to. The caramel back of the gold rum mixed with lime is a little too sweet for me. However, mixing with this Tahitian lime rum makes an excellent round of drinks and, because it does remind me of a key lime pie on its own, I cannot wait to try it in a Key Lime Pie Martini in which I'm thinking of replacing the lime cordial with Brinley Lime and the vanilla vodka with their vanilla rum. Sounds delicious!
Brinley Gold Vanilla Rum
One suggestion of the many for Brinley Gold Vanilla Rum is to use it to replace the vanilla vodka in the somewhat popular Creamsicle. This little change transforms the drink into a slightly richer bit of sweet deliciousness that has more depth than vodka can ever give to it. Another delightful drink that this vanilla brings to another level, try it out in a Banana Daiquiri - with this you will find a frozen concoction that will thrill the tastebuds.
