Quote the Wife "It tastes like ginger ale, DUH."

Banana Rama

Fill pint glass with ice
1 shot of Brinley's Mango Rum
1 shot of Brinley's Vanilla Rum
1 shot of Cruzan Banana Rum
4 shots of sprite
splash of Orange drink
a few leaves of mint
small piece of lemon

Directions: muddle the mint with the lemon and blend the rest.

The key to this drink is the mint.  It helps bring out a more flavorful banana while at the same time reducing the syrupy aftertaste.

Shark Attack

2 shots of Meyers Dark Rum
4 shots of Coke Zero
splash of grenadine
splash of sprite

Mix all the ingredients and it should taste like grapefruit juice
