Are you a Rum Drinker? Even if you're not, there is a rum on the market that is worth exploring. Denizen Rum, a blend of Trinidadian and Jamaican rum, was introduced to New York two years ago and has been taking the marketplace by storm. It has been experimented with among the talent of the mixology community because Denizen brings white rum back to its original form with a fuller flavor and perfect clarity.
Denizen can be used in place of any spirit for a classic cocktail because it is charcoal filtered and aged in oak, which leaves it to yield a full body. We can welcome back the redolent aroma and taste that most producers take out of the product through the distillation process.
JBird Cocktails' Marshall Altier, shows us the ropes on what to do and what not do with cocktails during the mixing process. The steps taken to create and make an alcoholic beverage is more than you would think. It takes just as much love and passion to make a drink that will go with your meal or get your night started, as it does to make a dish. The components have to be thought of separately but brought together as a whole, and Altier certainly shows us when it is best to shake and stir our drinks, along with how to stock our bar at home.
