Bacardi Cocktails

This cocktal MUST be made with Bacardi rum, by law!  Seriously, it was the subject of a court case in the States in the 1930s, when the Bacardi Rum Company succeeded in obtaining a decision that only their brand could be used in cocktails sold as Bacardi Cocktails.  And who are we to disagree?  There is a nice little rhyme to help you remember how to make it:

A LITTLE SOUR, (Juice of half a lime or lemon)
A LITTLE SWEET, (1/2 teaspoonful of sugar or the equivalent of Gomme syrup, along with a little Grenadine)
THE TROPIC SUN, (A jigger of BACARDI, White or Silver Label)
WITHOUT THE HEAT! (Ice and shake well)

However, after you have drunk one, you will soon forget the rhyme!
