Mike Treffehn of The Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. in Philadelphia shared this tiki-style drink recipe. It brings out the best in three rums with their own strong personalities.
Note: To make rich demerara syrup, mix 1 cup sugar with 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves. Let cool before using. Demerara syrup will keep in the refrigerator for up to five days.

1/2 ounce Ron Zacapa 23
1/2 ounce Smith and Cross rum
