Two tablespoons of white sugar? Yes, please :) While this is a bit on the sweet side, I did enjoy it. I can't say that I'll make it again, but I enjoyed it while it lasted. I used bottled lime juice, so I'd imagine fresh would even kick it up a notch. CHEERS, Allrecipes!

This is a fun and refreshing drink to make. I only had Spiced Rum instead of the light rum, but it turned out fine. I don't eat a lot of sugar, so I only used 1 tablespoon. It was still tangy and refreshing.
