    Default Rum lovers

    The whisky and brandy guys have so much choices of brands to choose from but we rum guys have fairly limited choices. After stumbling upon this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQox0K412Xg) I decided to try it myself with a few small changes due to availability of spices etc. So this is my 1st try for a spiced rum:
    500ml Captain Morgan
    Half an orange peel and 1 orange segment
    2 Vinilla pods
    6 Whole black pepper corns
    2 Cinamon Stick
    1 Teaspoon Ani seed
    3 slices ginger (1R coin size of 3mm thick)
    1 Teaspoon ground Nutmeg
    4 Cloves
    Leave it for 4 days, stirring it everyday. Drain through a coffee filter and pour back into a clean bottle.

    It came out quite interesting!!! I thought it might come out a lot darker but it came out just a bit darker than the normal rum. Sooooo many flavors!!! At first the orange seems prominent but quickly you get other flavors coming through!! The ginger can easily dominate everything if you use too much. All in all, quite nice!!!

    So I challenge other rum lovers to try out some recipes and report back

    Too complicated for me but as it is winter coming I give my very simple medicine for cold. Make a mug of hot black tea. Add and mix sugar to taste (Only drink I put sugar in). Add black rum to taste. Drink before the drink gets cold. Repeat as required. No more flu. Or at least you do not remember it.

    You had better start making a plan...

    Rum is perfect. It doesn't need all the hullabaloo of the other drinks.

    Love the stuff. But it is getting quite expensive, with no real alternatives.... (Red Heart tastes funny to me).

    I would try the mixture for the heck of it, but it would be like pouring food coloring and sweeto into a craft beer to me... Cappies already have quite a complex taste when put together correctly. (Normal glass, FULL of ice, double, fresh coke = Massive smile)

    If he did it to Red Heart, I would have agreed with you. I think he put some good effort in to spice up a boring drink.

    I used to be an avid Captain Morgan Dark drinker, and I also liked Red Heart, Appleton Estate, but I couldnt get to like Spiced gold, was just way to sweet for me.

    These days, I just stick to brannas & coke.

    Try coke lite or pepsi lite. Makes a huge difference.

    Captain Morgan doesn't honk that much...

    But it can cause Heart Puplitations.
