HOW COULD WE MAKE A SPICED RUM WITH BOTTOMLESS FLAVOR?
By combining spices & citrus like a pastry chef would for indulgent, layered depth.
In spice we trust: CRUSOE Spiced Rum combines the warmth of baking spices with the bright taste of fresh California orange. This is what spiced rum always wanted to be: rich flavor that stands out in cocktails. Add extra depth to your favorite drinks like Cuba Libre, Dark & Stormy, Mojito or Mai Tai.
DESCRIPTION: A new kind of spiced rum that elevates the category above the usual suspects
TASTING NOTES: Layered baking spices balanced by sweet orange with a caramel finish
INGREDIENTS: Blackstrap molasses rum, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla beans, allspice, nutmeg, orange zest, osmanthus and molasses
2 oz CRUSOE Spiced Rum
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup
Shake and strain into cocktail glass
Garnish with lime wheel
“On the nose, there’s some alcohol up front, but give it a minute to settle in the glass and you’ll find lots of allspice and cloves. Take a sip and there’s more of the same, plus more prominent vanilla and cinnamon notes mingling with a background of orange peels. It’s medium-bodied and fresh on the palate, and it finishes with plenty of dry spice.”
