During our stay on St. John I sampled and was mesmerized by a new local rum. Bones is being distilled by some guys on the island. It is a dark rum with complexity beyond its relative rookie status. We drank it with a local Virgin Islands Ginger Beer. I had never tasted Fort Bay before...let alone heard of it. The combination, with a squeeze of lime, is my new benchmark for a Dark and Stormy.
Perhaps part of the equation is that I was drinking this delicious cocktail while enjoying this view.
