Actually orange juice works pretty nicely.

Not much to be honest. Rum (white rum, that is) and soda water is a bit...well...bleurgh, to be honest. Even if you stick some lime in it, it's still kind of...bleurgh.

Rum works best in a good ol' Mojito-type affair, imho.

IMHO lime sucks, it's  only cheaper than italian lemons that are more tasteful.

It should perhaps be made clear what type of rum we are talking about here... My orange suggestion was with navy or spiced rum in mind, wouldn't really work with white rum.

And I heard that if you mix lime and cinnamon in the right ratio (don't ask me) you get cola taste... (roll) Never tried it so can't attest for it, but the judges (it was that big baking off TV contest) seemed to agree that it did in fact taste of cola. (roll)

What about eggnog? Doesn't the alcoholic version have rum in it? Eggnog is one of my favorite drinks, but it's a hard time finding it after Christmas.

Other than that I would suggest some kind of fruit juice. Pineapple would probably work well. Maybe also coconut water. Make yourself a Piña colada.

Adding a dash of it to a cup of black tea would be quite seasonal.

Thanks dudes. I've been using lime juice and ice, which is great. Will try some cinnamon with it next time!
