I think you are fine with what you have.  Im a Malibu drinker myself but if you want drinks like Mai Tai’s you need the light rum and dark rum.

I’m not a major rum drinker, but that sounds like a good selection to me.

You can’t go wrong with Captain Morgans…it’s pretty standard. Light rum and malibu are good too…if you have those I don’t know if you would need too much more. But it depends on the crowd!

Man i think you have plenty!!! Light rum is just fine! After all, you don’t want to be left over with tons of rum afterwards.

What drinks were you planning on having?  I agree, I think you’re good with what you have.  If you decide to do the rum and cokes, any will do really.  Since you have Malibu you can change it up by adding juices to it, like pineapple juice, it’s a tasty drink.

If you have Captain’s and Bicardi you should be all set. You will cover dark rum and clear rum. I love a Captains and coke but also drink Mojitos all summer.

Personally, if I do a rum & pineapple my preference is Meyer’s dark.  But if I’m going cheap, I’ll do Bacardi light rum.  I do think there’s a difference in Captain’s/Sailor Jerry and a dark rum like Meyer’s for those drinks, but the best sub is light like Bacardi.  So if you wanted a full bar and don’t care about leftovers, I’d pick up a dark rum too.

You do not need both light and dark rum. We will probably only have light rum, so I think your variety is great!

I think a lot of people normally drink light rum, but my Fiance loves Meyer’s so that’s what we are having. From what he says light rum is not as strong alcohol tasting so I guess it might appeal to more people than a dark rum (I have no idea if that’s true that’s just his opinion as a rum drinker).

Sounds like you already have a great variety. I wouldn’t worry about it at all.
