Many mixed drinks can be hacked once you get a feel for the ingredients. A friend of mine took a bartending course and knows way more about the "real" way of doing it, but I'm always surprising her with mixed drinks I have worked on lovingly for years. Most are of the kind that no bartender in his right mind would ever make because they take too long to do or require specialized ingredients.
Because I live only a moderate walk from saltwater, rum is always in style. (Actually rum is my favorite spirit even when I lived a long way from the sea.)
