What is RUM?
Rum is a distilled alcoholic drink made from sugarcane byproducts, such as molasses, or directly from sugarcane juice, by a process of fermentation and distillation. The distillate, a clear liquid, is then usually aged in oak barrels. – Wikipedia

Most of the world’s rum is produced in the Caribbean and Latin America but its production has spread throughout the world. Rums are produced in various styles.

LIGHT RUMS (also known as white or silver rums) have nearly no color and are lighter in flavour.

AGED RUMS are aged in wooden casks for some period of time which
gives the spirit its signature color and sweeter, richer flavor.

DARK RUMS are aged the longest of any of these types of rum. The extended time it spends in wooden casks gives it a dark color and deep, smoky-sweet flavor.

SPICED RUM is typically aged for the same length of time as black rum but spices and caramel colorings are added to give it a signature sweet spice taste.

The Cuba Libre is a simple, tasty cocktail steeped with history. The drink was created during the Spanish-American war and the words Cuba Libre translate to ‘free Cuba’.

The Pina Colada is the official cocktail of Puerto Rico and has been for over 35 years! It is also classified as an International Bartenders Association official cocktail and for good reason. Everyone loves a good pina colada especially in the summer months.

This version of the Planter’s Punch is essentially a dark rum Daiquiri with the addition of aromatic bitters served over crushed ice. There are numerous versions of the Planters Punch cocktail but I prefer the simple yet strong recipe that David Embury features in his 1948 book, The Fine Art of Making Drinks.
