Rum Ting (without Ting)

Even in a temperate climate like the Danish with no heat wave on the horizon a tall, cold drink can be the only thing that keeps a day from being a total write off.

Today is just such a day.

So a Rum Ting to the rescue. Only problem: I have yet to source Ting.

But I do have freshly squeezed pink grape fruit and sparkling water.

  • 6 cl rum - I used Plantation Three star White Rum
  • 6 cl freshly squeezed grape fruit juice*
  • 14 cl sparkling water *
Fill a tall glass with crushed ice - beating the h... out of the ice in a Lewis bag is very satisfying on a day like this - add the rum and the juice.

Stir until the glass is frosted and then add the sparkling water. Garnish with a sprig of mint - add straws and a green monkey. 

* Or 20 cl (2 dl) Ting
