Mojitos are typically lighter drinks, so spiced rum might be a little odd, or at least no longer a true mojito variant. Haven't you seen those Bacardi ads? :)

i agree, but if you like spiced rum (i don't), i'd think it'd go better with hot tea. again, not that i've tried it- i'm just thinking of it being a simillar theory to spiced hot apple cider.
