DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN.

Welcome to the Rum drinks page

Rum is made from molasses which typically comes from cane sugar, or from cane juice. When sugar cane juice is boiled and the water removed, the sticky dark residue is molasses. All rums are clear after distillation and colors or flavors are added after this point.

Lighter rums are produced in a column still and are more refined, and have less flavor and color. Most are aged in a barrel for a period of time to give them a bit more character and a smoother palate. Rum that is clear is aged in a stainless steel tank.

Darker rums are heavier and often are flavored with caramel (which is burnt sugar). These are usually barrel aged, up to 30 years, and are produced in an older style pot still. Typically most dark rums are aged less than 15 years.

Types of Rum

  • White Rum is usually used in mixed drinks and goes especially well in fruit drinks
  • Dark Rums have caramel added and are full bodied, similar to a whiskey, as they are made in pot stills and some oils and flavors added during distillation will carry over. These are usually drank as shots .
  • Jamaican rum is fermented for up to four weeks and distilled twice before aging in oak casks. The aging for a Jamaican rum is upwards of five years.
  • Spiced Rums have added fruit and spice flavors and can be any color from clear through dark. They blend especially well in Planters Punches.
  • Amber or Gold Rum is golden in color and have been aged for several years in oak casks, giving them a smoothness similar to a top quality wine or port.
  • Puerto Rican rum is an amber rum, golden in color, light bodied, and barrel aged for three years or more.
  • Añejo or Flavored Rum is made by mixing different types of rum together similar to the production of blended scotches. This type of rum will typically have been produced from a variety of rums that have been aged several years in oak casks.
  • Overproof Rum - this is the strong rum that is used as floats in drinks such as the legendary Rum Runner. These are 150 proof which is 75% alcohol. Caution must be taken with these rums as they can be poisonous to the human body and are highly flammable.

Where does Rum come from?

Rum is thought of as a Caribbean liquor and it is made in the Barbados, Cuba, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Trinidad, Martinique, the Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. However it is also made in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Brazil. Not as well known is that the USA, Canada, Tahiti, Australia, the Philippines, and Thailand also produce rum.

Rum Runner

If you visit the Caribbean or Florida you will encounter the legendary Rum Runner. This drink is fantastic on a hot sunny day. It was invented at the Isle Tiki Bar (which I can highly recommend) at Islamorada, Florida. There are many variations upon this drink but here is the most commonly used recipe.

Ingredients

  • Blender
  • Large glass of your choice
  • Light rum
  • Dark rum
  • Overproof rum
  • Blackberry brandy
  • Banana liqueur
  • Pineapple juice
  • Orange juice
  • Lime juice
  • Grenadine
  • Orange slice for garnish

Recipe

  • Blender
  • Add two cups of ice
  • Add 1 ounce light rum
  • Add 1 ounce dark rum
  • Add 1 ounce blackberry brandy
  • Add 1 and a half ounces Banana liqueur
  • Add 1 ounce orange juice
  • Add 1 ounce pineapple juice
  • Add a splash of grenadine
  • Turn blender on and blend until it’s smooth and no large chunks of ice. Do not over blend it.
  • Pour into large glass
  • Add one ounce of Overproof rum as a floater
  • Place orange slice on glass rim for garnish
  • Sip and enjoy!

Mojito

A refreshing drink from Cuba that has become popular in trendy bars, and on sunny days. There are many recipes for Mojitos varying in difficulty depending upon premade syrups and flavors. The recipe listed below is arguably the best tasting while also one of the most labor intensive. The amount of labor can be reduced if you are making multiple drinks at a time. This drink takes about three minutes to make, assuming all ingredients are on hand, and the bar or mixing area well organized.

Ingredients

  • A large glass of your choice
  • Mint - 3 sprigs
  • Ice - twice as much as you think you'll need
  • Sugar - 2 tbs
  • Fresh Limes - 1 per drink
  • White Rum - 1 1/2 ounces minimum
  • Club Soda or clear unflavored soda water
  • Muddler or spoon.

Note: This will make a stronger drink than is generally served in a bar or restaurant so adjust accordingly for alcohol tolerance. Mixed properly you won't taste the alcohol even when exceptionally strong. Practice caution with your guests and ensure they are not going to be driving.

Recipe

  • Pour an ounce of Club Soda in the glass
  • Add two sprigs of mint
  • Add 2 tbs of sugar
  • Squeeze in half a lime. Throw the lime husk away.
  • Muddle your drink (or use a spoon). Muddling is crushing and stirring the mixture of soda, sugar, lime and mint.
  • Do this until the sugar is dissolved and you can smell the mint coming out.
  • Fill the glass to the top with full sized ice cubes.
  • Add rum to within an inch of the top of the glass. In a decent sized glass, assuming the glass is filled to the brim with ice cubes, you should be able to get in two to three ounces of Rum.
  • Squeeze the other half of the lime into the drink and drop this husk of this lime in the drink.
  • Top with Club Soda and place your last sprig of mint in the glass.
  • Stir and enjoy.

Created properly this drink will taste of mint, lime, and sweet from the brown sugar. If a guest does not wish to partake in alcohol, or is a designated driver, they can still enjoy a “Nojito”. A Nojito is the same drink made with Club Soda and no Rum. The taste is almost identical and just as refreshing. This is good etiquette for allowing a designated driver or non drinker to feel included in the festivities.
