Brinley Gold Coconut Rum

Brinley Gold Coconut Rum is one that will inspire you to try a touch of coconut in your favorite rum cocktails. I went "tropical classic" with my experiments and found that having that flavor as a back makes a Knickerbocker see a whole new light - mostly because of the butterscotch-like feeling that mixing delightfully with the raspberry.

While the Pina Colada may be a natural inclination for mixing the coconut, I found there was too much coconut. Yet, along the same line, the addition of curacao with this rum results in a delicious Blue Hawaiian and, again, a Banana Daiquiri. Brinley's suggested Brinley Bay Breeze, which is simply the coconut rum with pineapple juice (like a Bay Breeze) was a nice and simple drink that is far more interesting than the vodka version.

Brinley Gold Mango Rum

I enjoyed Brinley Gold Mango Rum, though it was not my favorite of the line. It does have a fruity sweetness that is very inviting, but it can be overdone one its own. Instead, this one is a semi-sweet base for adding more fruit to some excellent tropical cocktails.

Mixing with the mango is a lot of fun. You can pair this rum with the amaretto of the Immaculate, the orange of a Madison Avenue or the grapefruit of a Nevada. Simple is the company's Ruby Mango (Mango Rum with cranberry, similar to a Cape Codder) and for a twist on the ordinary, a Mango Mojito will do the trick.
