My Brugal saga continues.  As previously mentioned, my best friend (and sometimes partner in rum crime) initially introduced me to Brugal.  At the time that she went to the Dominican, I was only drinking white rum, so against all local recommendations she brought me back a bottle of the white rum.  Initially, no Brugal rums were available at the LCBO.  When they did start to carry Brugal, it was only two different spiced rums.  So I have been lucky enough to have other vacationing friends pick up bottles of white for  me.

Over the last few years I have amassed a collection of these nice little duty-free bottles.  

I quite enjoy drinking this rum in the summer with pink grapefruit juice and a splash of cranberry.  It makes for a tart and refreshing beverage.  I think it would be excellent in any fruity, tropical cocktail as well. 

All this talk of rum-based tropical drinks makes me want to go to the Dominican. Hopefully one day soon.
