I drink it because I like the taste, so why would I want to disguise it as something else? I’m drinking rum because I like the taste of rum; with a splash of something extra perhaps, but the essence is pure.

Is that why they’re called spirits? Because you can taste the essence of each drink, and each one slips a bit into you as you slip a bit into it. Each Spirit its own. Unique.

Juice ruins that. Soda hides it away.

No no no. I like my Spirits strong. My drinks pure.

Bottoms up.
