Thanks to his connection with the pirates, the rum became one of the most recognizable alcoholic drinks in the world. But for many years a unified culture of its use and not developed. There are many opinions on the most appropriate snack to Roma and its combination with other beverages. I propose to consider this issue, based on our national traditions.
Rum is usually served in glasses with thick walls together with ice. It can be drunk by the following methods:
1. Without snacks. This method is suitable for true connoisseurs and requires a high quality beverage. If you decide to try the taste of rum, I advise you to buy gold (amber) or dark types. They have a pronounced aroma and taste.
Beverage brand needs to be known, is a guarantee of high quality. Perfectly suited brands such as “Bacardi” (Bacardi), “Captain Morgan” (Captain Morgan), and “Club Havana” (Havana club).
Remember that the rum from 35 to 70 degrees, so drink it in large quantities without snacks is not recommended. Not to spoil the taste after each SIP of rum to seize a piece of bread.
2. With a snack. Since rum is the drink the sea, the best snack for him will be seafood. On the table is possible to file any fish (except herring), caviar, and shrimp. All kinds of rum (white, Golden and dark) go well with meat dishes, for example, lean grilled meats and sausages. Even you can prepare sandwiches with cheese and herbs. The first dish with the rum a rarity.
Dark rum can be drunk with fruit – pineapples, oranges, lemons, melons or apples. It goes well with Smoking cigars.
Lime is a good appetizer to the Golden rum
Lovers of cognac, I prefer to drink rum with sweet snacks: chocolate, cakes and sweets. In this case I recommend to buy gold Rums, they go perfectly with sweets.
3. In cocktails. Used light rum medium and high quality. The most famous cocktails on the basis of rum are “Mojito” and “Barbados punch”. But that’s other stuff that may only vaguely resemble real taste of rum.
4. Mixing with other drinks. First are juices, such as lemon, orange and Apple. Rum made diluted juices in the ratio of 1:1 or 1:2 (one part rum to two parts juice). Of alcoholic drinks with the rum syrup and vermouth in the same proportions as the juices
It is best to dilute other beverages of white Rums, since they have a mild taste, their main advantage – high strength.
In North America it is customary to drink rum and coke or coffee. Get a very original combinations that are worth a try for everyone. Sometimes the rum is diluted with hot chocolate, but in the end it turns out very sweet drink, which not everyone likes.
