Cocktail Geeks Blogging Their Way Through Books
Speaking on Social Media at the WSWA April 12

Some Prefer Dark Rum

Lime BumbooL In today's blog post, I talk about how rum geeks get peeved when you say "dark rum" when you mean "aged rum."

The funny thing is, much "white rum" is also aged a little bit and I don't hear any complaining about that.

Rum lovers, you just can't please them, except with rum.

Also, there's a cocktail recipe for the Lime Bumboo by Jestset John Deragon. It uses a brown sugar syrup made with lime juice instead of water and aged overnight. Weird.

Sounds like an inverted syrup to me!


So true.
Also, I suspect that some dark rums are all colourings and flavours, and not aged at all.
