Bahama Bob's Rumstyles
Monday, January 9, 2012
In the Rum Lab we have spent a lot of time with rum creating cocktails to show off the attributes of many rums. It is the rum that is so important in these cocktails, because it is the flavor of the rum that is the basis of the cocktail. The Rum Lab results almost always revealed that the best cocktails were the ones that the mixers enhanced the rum rather than burying it in some other flavor. Choose your mixers wisely to bring out the flavors of the rum and still enhance your experience with the cocktail.
It really doesn't matter how you enjoy the spirit of the sugar cane, what is important is that you enjoy it your way. It goes right along with the spirit of rum in that there are no rule on how the rum is produced, there are no rule for how you enjoy it either. Your palate is the only one that counts so keep trying the thousands of different rums out there until you find that very special one that makes you heart and mind say aaaaaaaaah. I'll be enjoying a 20 year old Mocambo, a Mexican rum today as I cruise out toward the Marquesas Keys in the dinghy today. ;o)
