My Dad’s Rum and Tonic

This refreshing cocktail, zingy with plenty of lime juice, will convert any rum skeptic.

1. Fill a glass with good, clear ice and add the rum—my dad insisted on Myers’s Dark Rum for this drink, and I have to agree.

2. Top with tonic water, add more lime juice than you might think, and a couple more slices for good measure.
