I've had a couple of Chinese Cocktails tonight. Although I'm not so sure what's so Chinese about them, they sure are tasty... I used Appleton Special rum, Luxardo Triplum instead of curaçao, Luxardo maraschino, Fee Bros. old-fashioned bitters, and Stirrings grenadine [1]. For lack of lemons, I omitted the lemon twist.

The result was smoky-sweet, with the pomegranate flavor from the grenadine hovering in the background, and the liqueurs harmonizing perfectly.

Does anyone else have any suggestions for rum-based drinks?

[1] I won't even touch Rose's or Collins so-called grenadine...
