Rum is what gives this dish a lot of flavor. Dark rum is the best to use. The Liquor Barn in Hamburg has a variety of different rums to chose from that would be great in this recipe.  Myers dark rum is a great one to use. 

Make sure to serve this dish immediately after plating, so the ice cream doesn't melt too much. Enjoy!
