This week the southern United States received a blanketing of snow. As I watched the snow swirl around my backyard, I found myself dreaming of Summer. So I opened my rum cabinet, pulled out a few rums, and mixed up a quick cocktail in order to stay warm.
Some pineapple juice, a splash of Orgeat and a heavy pour of El Dorado 12 Year Demerara Rum made for a nice respite from the cold.
Dreaming of warmer weather reminded me of a bottle of Traveller’s 5 Barrel a good friend who brought me from Belize awhile back. It also reminded me that I’ve had this bottle of Starr African Rum resting unopened in my rum locker for probably 5 years.
I think I’ll keep the Starr African unopened for Summer mojitos.
