This type of "serious" research can lead to various issues. Health issues, mental issues, relationship issues...
As the story goes, Rum Runners were invented in the late 1950's at the Holiday Isle Tiki Bar in Islamorada, Florida.
Supposedly, the bar had an excess of rum and certain liqueurs that needed to be moved before the arrival of more inventory.
A very tasty concoction was developed using the excess alcohol and voila! The Rum Runner! They named the drink after the real "Rum Runners" that inhabited the Florida Keys in the early days!
As with all great recipes, whether food or drink, changes are made as they are passed along. Most recipes are altered by using different amounts of the same ingredients. Sometimes an ingredient may be substituted or changed and the recipe will remain intact.
The rules of the recipe are meant to be altered to suit your individual taste, but you can't change the main ingredients and still call it a rum runner!
The following recipe is a tried and true favorite among rum drinkers! Try a "Rum Runner" at your next get together! Try this recipe and if you like it, pay it forward!

On the Rocks:
Fill glass with ice. Add the liquid contents. Pour the 151 in the straw or on the top. This is my favorite way to enjoy the Rum Runner. Enjoy!
No Hurricane glass available, no problem. Anything that will hold liquid will work!
