Summer Cocktail with Caliche Rum

       Caliche Rum is made through the use of multiple distillations and carbon-active filtration to produce the cleanest possible rum.   A portion of the rum is aged in American white oak barrels and some in a solera system, then blended for the desired characteristics.    The rum has a very nice and smooth flavor with notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak.  The rum is more viscous that other white rums produced by Distileria Seralles.

     I recently received Caliche at the Rum Bar in Key West, it is a great upgrade for any cocktail that uses white rum .    The smooth aged flavors brings any fine cocktail to life, try it in a Mojito, it blends well with the mint and lime flavors to yield a perfect ultra-premium cocktail.

Caliche Sunset
·         1 ½ oz. Caliche Rum
·         ¼ oz. Agave Nectar
·         ½ oz. Orange Juice
·         Top Off with Barrett’s Ginger Beer
·         1/2 oz. Pomegranate Liqueur Float

      Pour the Rum, Agave Nectar and the Orange Juice into a shaker and shake until chilled.   Strain into a Collin's glass filled with ice.  Top up with Barrett’s Ginger Beer, and float with Pomegranate Liqueur.   Garnish with an Orange Wheel.

      This will work well for you on an evening on the patio or an afternoon by the pool, perfect sparkling refreshing summer cocktail.   ;o)
