Sunshine from the Zen Tiki Lounge Podcast inspired me to make my own spiced rum. It's really easy to do.
To spice your own rum Sunshine's recipe calls for:
- 1 750 ml Bottle of Cruzan Gold Rum
- 1 vanilla bean sliced down the middle
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 black pepper berry
- 2 alllspice berries
- 3 cloves
Just drop the ingredients into the bottle. Give the bottle a couple of turns every day; don't shake it. After a couple of days sample the rum. Once the flavor gets to something you like remove everything from the rum. That's all there is to it. What is really great is you can experiment and try other spices and flavors to make a rum all of your own.
This is the first time I've tried to spice my own rum. I'm really excited to see how it turns out. Stay tuned and I'll keep you posted on how it turns out.
