Whiskey isn't the only liquor which pairs well with smoke. Rum, especially dark rum, is also a great dance partner for some extra smokey flavor. Dark rum gets it's color from the charred oak barrels it is aged in. The same way whiskey gets its darker color from charred barrels.
Instead of being bottled right after the distilling process like clear or white rum, dark, sometimes called 'black' rum, is aged in charred barrels. The barrels are charred with flames and smoke, hence the natural bond between dark rum and smokey flavors.
After experimenting with several Caribbean-style rum drinks, we ultimately ranked the Rum Zing highest of the lot we tested. The flavor infusion of rum, orange, ginger, and cherry is brought to life with the toasted smokey flavor added by the Drink Smoker Kit from Aged & Charred. Top these liquid ingredients off with a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg and let this drink take you on a mental vacation.
We hope you enjoy the Smoked Rum Zing cocktail recipe by Aged & Charred. Like all of our cocktail recipes, we try to keep the ingredients as simple as we can, using common ingredients found in the home bar.
