I have a lot of liquor left over from my recent wedding: a big bottle of Bacardi white rum and three bottles of whiskey (Jameson, Dewars and Jack Daniels). Also a bottle of Cointreau, and Beefeater gin (which I know what to do with). I never drink whiskey or rum, so I have no idea what to do with this stuff. I've had some success this evening mixing the rum with fresh lime juice, Cointreau, and seltzer. The best we've come up with for the whiskey is my husband doing shots of it and me drinking the Jameson with ice, but it's not too pleasant.
What's the best way to use this stuff up without suffering? My usual drinks are either gin or vodka, gin being my preference. Tom Collins is "our drink" when I make the cocktails, usually when we're out we both enjoy a gin and tonic if there aren't any interesting cocktails available.
