Drinking rum at home can be a challenge, so the Australian distillery has developed an easy-to-make drink that will not only make you feel good, but can also help you get through the day.Read more“Rim and barrelsA big part of the fun of drinking rum is seeing the spirits in the glass.
But to make a good rum, you need to know how to use them properly, and the recipe below is one that can be adapted to your own taste buds.
The recipe: The best way to drink rumYou can find the original recipe for the drink in the book The Art of Rum, by the British distiller James Bond.
I’ve been asked to share the recipe with you so that you can enjoy it with friends and family.
I’ve adapted it to the tastes of my family and friends, but I’ve included it with a tip of the hat to the makers of the gin, rum and vodka I love, The Barmaids.
Here’s the recipe for a basic rum drink: Rim rum mix 1 oz of rum (I use St James brand) 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup cornstarch (to thicken) 1 cup waterMix the rum and sugar in a saucepan, add water, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
The rum will thicken and make a thick syrup.
Put the syrup in a glass and garnish with a slice of lemon peel.
This drink can also be made with other spirits.
For example, gin, gin and tonic syrup are all good choices.
What you need:Rim 1 pint (or 1 litre) of rumMix the cornstech and water together in a small saucepan.
Add the rum, sugar, and cornstich and simmer until the sugar is dissolved.
Add water as needed to cover the rum.
Stir in the corn syrup and pour into the glass or a plastic bag.
For a more elegant, more elegant rum, try a bottle of brandy, vodka, rum or brandy and rum.

The cocktail should be made up of rum, brandy or vodka, and ice cubes.
If the ice cubes are too small, add a bit more ice, and try again.
I have a lot of ice cubes to add to a rum drink, so if you have any suggestions, leave a comment below.
