Sweet Corn and Strawberry Smash
Sweet corn lends a delicate, earthy and unexpected flavor to your drinks. And when juicy strawberries are in season they make for the perfect sidekick to sweet corn in this refreshing rum smash cocktail.
Aged rum has a lot of flavor complexity, making it a worthy substitute for whiskey in one of the most classic cocktail recipes; the Old Fashioned. Look for a rum with 12 plus years of aging to ensure a mature flavor that won't disappoint.
As the story goes the Rum Runner was invented at a popular bar in the Florida Keys in the 1950s. The bartender had some extra inventory lying around and wanted to make room for new bottles on his shelves. He mixed them all together and the drink was born.
Jessica shares that punch recipes like the Rum Punch should have five key elements; sour, bitter, sugar, water, and strong alcohol. In this particular recipe she used an extra anejo rum from Venezuela. It has a rich sugar flavor with a hint of citrus, spice, and chocolate.
