Okay, so it's the end of the month. Money's running low, and you want to get your drunk on. What do you grab? Look no further than Aristocrat RUM. Notice the emphasis on rum? That's because Aristocrat is typically known for their vodka--which is also cheap, but tastes HORRID. So when I started hearing praise for their rum, I was a bit suspicious at first. I mean $13 for a handle? That has to be some grade-A nastiness. Right? Surprisingly, no. Granted, it might not make the best sipping rum, but then again, it's a silver rum. It's not really intended to be sipped. With its clean taste, where this drink really shines is with its mixability. Whether you just want a rum and coke, or something a bit more complicated, Aristocrat's standard 80 proof rum will provide a great addition to your drink.
On the Broke College Student Scale, you'll be hard pressed to find anything cheaper that didn't eat your stomach lining. Aristocrat's Rum gets a 5/5.
As for Drunkability: The proof is nothing special, but it mixes so well, you may have to have to watch your intake, or risk loosing your pants. I'll give it a 4/5.
