I cannot tell you how excited I was when Denizen contacted me and asked if I'd like to try their Rum.... like really? Me? Little old Grasshopper?
Yup. They had seen my Rum Compilation and decided I was worth a bottle.... how right they are :)
So, once it arrived I sat with it displayed at the dinner table for a week.... the children shook their heads at me as they often do, the adults passed it around smelling it and eventually sipping.... it was a nice Rum. Phew, it was nice [I was so worried it would suck]. It was VERY tropical smelling but not as intense as a Malibu. Just an essence of tropical fruit. I finally decided I would try a Collins with it for Thirsty Thursday. Nothing too complex but a little tart to go with the sweet. It was VERY nice. I actually think this will be FABULOUS Mojito Rum.... and I'll report back on that!
TRY THIS IN THE MEANWHILE...
what you need:
2 oz. White Rum [I really enjoyed the Denizen]
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 oz. simple syrup
2 oz. club soda
what you do:
mix the Rum, lemon juice & simple syrup together and then pack your class with ice. Top with club soda and garnish with lemon. AHHH. Cheers!
