NOTE:  Use your favorite rum if you don't have the Bumbu (which is delicious I might add) You will see a difference though as this rum has tons of notes like banana, vanilla, etc.

New School Recipe:


1.5 oz of Bumbo rum (again any dark rum will do), 1 oz lime juice, splash of grenadine, 1/4 tsp of nutmeg


Shake, and strain into a coupe glass (yes, I know danty and can't see pirates holding this but a drink is a drink, right!!)

NOTE: Again, any rum will do!!!
