Mauritius manufactures a vast range of cane rum. It is inexpensive and makes a nice drink when mixed with cola and ice. Another popular drink is a mixture of coconut water, a dash of lime and a bit of cane rum over ice. It’s worth looking for a bottle of cane rum that is at least 5 years old.
The drinks at the hotels and resorts in Mauritius are quite expensive and it is worth getting your drinks in the local villages or supermarkets where the prices are much lower.
