named after famous Brisbane City Lothario from the early 90's - 2010. A Rouse is another name for a Rum and Coke without Ice. To this day the majority of Brisbane pubs and nightspots will serve such a drink upon request without questioning what it actually is. Some say he was single handidly responsible for putting the ithica ice works out of business.
I can't believe that he continues to drink a "Rouse" when its 34deg ... I need to have ice in my rum !
