This is a blog that will take you through the Rum lifestyles of a fine group of people that enjoy the fun and pleasure of fine rums. We will travel to distilleries, partys, and Rum Events to bring you the Rumstyles of all those we come in contact with.
Grape Fruit juice is a very interesting citrus to work with. It is very tart by nature, nut works very well if you are trying to avoid the sickish sweet tropical cocktails that are so traditional. I had an idea to do some work with grapefruit juice and rum the other day and found that if I mix the right rum with it and add a bit of sweetener there is a great flavor there that comes through making the cocktail very flavorful. I really like the daiquiri style cocktail and this one lends itself very well to the style.
2 oz. Plantation Barbados 5 Year Old Rum
1 oz. White Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz. DeKuyper Pomegranate Liqueur
1/2 oz. of Agave Nectar
Place all ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. Shake until really chilled and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry.
