      All About dark rum

      A happy by-product of sugar plantations

      Rum was first distilled during the 17th century in the Caribbean from molasses, a by-product of sugar cane products. Today, the world's oldest rum distillery has its home in Puerto Rico, and most rum comes from the Caribbean. Dark rums, which star molasses as their main ingredient add new dimensions to your cocktails. This dark liquor often adds the full-bodied flavors of spices and even caramel to what you're mixing for celebrations and happy hours. It also stands up well as a sipping beverage, either on the rocks or straight up.

      Enjoy dark rum for its rich flavors

      This rich rum, which manufacturers mostly produce by aging it in oak barrels, comes in deep amber colors and bold, spicy flavors for drinks with an impact. Dark rum is a favorite central ingredient of several summery cocktails. Try a Hurricane, developed in New Orleans, for an intriguing mix of passion fruit juice, lemon juice and rum. Rum punch develops a more textured flavor with the addition of dark rum. Add a splash of rum to your morning coffee to start your day off right when you're on vacation. 

      For a slightly funkier vibe, a dark Jamaican rum provides a full-bodied taste. It's naturally sweetened by sugar cane and offers a unique flavor from the water that runs through limestone and which is used during the fermenting stage. Drink dark rum on the rocks, in a fruity drink or sip it neat. Savor the depth of flavor of black rums, which manufacturers produce by aging in heavily charred oak barrels. They can include notes of licorice, cloves and vanilla. Pair them with citrusy and spicy foods for a delightful contrast of tastes.

      Many flavors abound for many tastes

      Caribbean rum often includes coconut notes, making it the ideal ingredient in a tropical cocktail. If you like the taste of tropical fruits with rum, you may want to choose a flavored rum, many of which feature coconut, limes and lemons. More unusual flavorings include mango, dragonberry and watermelon.
