Spices are known to be the best companions of Rum. If you fancy a drink try making your own spiced rum. Tweak the flavor profile and enjoy your very own creation. Here is a simple recipe which will leave a long lasting taste on your buds.
1 (750-mL) bottle Rum
1 Vanilla bean
1 (4-inch) slice Orange peel, white pith removed
1 Cinnamon stick
10 dried grapes
1 pinch Ground nutmeg
1 slice Fresh ginger, about the size of a quarter
Add all the ingredients to a wide-mouthed, airtight container and seal. Let stand for two days and taste. If you want a bit more flavor, leave it be for a third day. Strain the spices out and rebottle the liquid.
How should you drink your spiced rum when it’s done? Forget the cola. It’s winter; try making a hot Teatime Toddy with it.
