What You Should Know About Rum

She’s a vers queen! Rum is one of the most versatile spirits out there. It’s sweet, flavorful, and made from sugarcane juice or molasses, and is distilled in a process that varies depending on the type of rum being produced.

Light rum is the most common type and is typically used in cocktails that require a more neutral flavor. Dark rum is aged longer and has a more complex flavor profile with caramel, vanilla, and spice notes.

Spiced rum is infused with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves and is perfect for adding a little extra decadence to your cocktails. And finally, aged rum is the most complex and flavorful of them all, with a deep, rich taste that comes from being aged in oak barrels for many years.

No matter which type of rum you prefer, choosing the right one for your cocktail is important. Light rum works well with fruit juices and simple syrups, while dark rum is perfect for richer, more complex cocktails. Spiced rum is great for fall and winter drinks, while aged rum is ideal for sipping neat or on the rocks.

Juices That Mix Well With Rum

Creating the perfect cocktail with rum is all about finding the right mix of juices that complement the flavor of the rum. Here are some of the best juices to mix with rum to create delicious cocktails:

Pineapple Juice

Pineapple juice is a popular mixer for rum-based drinks and is perfect for creating tropical-inspired cocktails. Its sweet and tangy flavor pairs perfectly with the sweetness of rum and is perfect for creating canned cocktails that transport you to a warm, sandy beach.

Orange Juice

Orange juice is a versatile mixer that adds a bright citrus flavor to rum-based cocktails. It pairs particularly well with dark rum and is perfect for creating drinks like the classic Mai Tai or the Dark and Stormy.

Lime Juice

Lime juice is a staple in many rum-based cocktails and is essential for creating the perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors. It pairs well with light and dark rum and is perfect for creating drinks like the Cuba Libre or the Daiquiri.

Grapefruit Juice

Grapefruit juice is a great mixer for rum-based cocktails and is perfect for creating drinks with a slightly bitter edge. It pairs particularly well with spiced rum and is perfect for creating canned cocktails that are perfect for fall and winter.

Strawberry Juice

Strawberry juice is a delicious mixer for rum-based cocktails and is perfect for creating a classic drink: the strawberry daiquiri. The sweet and fruity flavor of the strawberry juice pairs perfectly with the rum, creating a delicious and refreshing drink that is perfect for any occasion.

Of course, you’re not limited to these juices—and it’s fun to get a little experimental, anyway!

Consider adding juices like pomegranate or cranberry for a unique and delicious twist. These tart and tangy juices perfectly complement the sweetness of rum, creating a balanced and refreshing drink. And for those who love a little spice, juices like ginger or jalapeño can add a bold and exciting twist to your cocktail.

Juices not only add flavor to your cocktail but also help balance out the rum's sweetness. For example, rum and pineapple juice is a classic combination that is both sweet and tangy, thanks to the addition of tropical fruit.
