  • Another, I know it's not Paleo/Primal question...

    We live on a sailboat in Florida and cruise the Keys and Bahamas. There is some rule somewhere that sailors are supposed to drink rum....
    Well when I have my Captian and coke, am I 'better off' have a diet coke?
    Or what about Coconut rum and pineapple juice? Coconuts are Paleo and pineapples are Paleo, so....

    Just wishful thinking.

        Sugar free daquari.

        2 parts light rum
        1 part Key Lime juice

        Shake well over crushed ice and strain.

          You're not better off with diet coke vs coke for your captain and coke. If you want soda sometimes, find one made with actual sugar and natural ingredients. There ARE some out there! The aspartame in diet coke is an abomination.

            Thanks for the ideas.
            I'm not tough enough et to go straight :-(
            There was that struggle between Sugar in regular coke and the 'who knows what' in the diet stuff.

            But several good ideas.

              If you can drink rum and diet coke you can drink anything. Upgrade the rum and drink less of it, or perhaps coconut water as a mixer?

                OK,
                We are a couple of weeks away from heading over to the Bahamas. The last time we went, I took 32 cases of beer. Now I don't drink nearly as much beer, but I guess we'll take some, just because it is VERY expensive over there.
                Rum is cheap there, so still looking for mixer ideas...

                  there are a couple of more "natural" diet sodas you could use as a mixer....
                  sweetened with stevia:
                  Zevia
                  Blue Sky Free

                  sweetened with splenda:
                  Hansen's Diet


                  (Zevia is not my favorite in any of their offered flavors but i haven't tried it with rum LOL)

                      Rum with coconut water and a splash of pineapple and/or lime is pretty tasty.

                        I'd go with the regular coke personally. My body IS made to handle spikes of dietary sugar. Maybe not well and certainly not ALL the time but my body has NO mechanism for handling artificial sweetener chemical crap!

                          Rum is better straight! On the rocks. Love me a good, dark rum.

                          However, coconut rum and pineapple juice is A-F*CKING-MAZING!

                          Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

                            I'd personally go with regular coke, but you'll get varying opinions.
                            Most people around here would probably say real sugar is better than artificial sweeteners. There is a stevia soda.. which might be good but I haven't bothered researching stevia.
                            As for not being tough enough, you just gotta learn how to drink it! On the rocks, let the ice melt a few minutes. Don't take gulps, take sips. If you want, add extra water at first to learn how to appreciate the taste, and slowly wean off the extra water over time. Just let the small amount just kind of diffuse around your mouth, you don't even need to swallow really.
                            But if you like rum-and-cokes, that's good too.
