Happy Friday, friends!
I’m SUPER excited about today’s post because it involves an extra cool liquor that I am so glad to now have in my cocktail arsenal! Have you ever heard of Plantation Pineapple Rum? It’s a delightful dark rum with not only a beautiful label (y’all know I’m all about the packaging!), but it is a gold medal winner when it comes to the rum world. Like, it’s won awards and stuff. And I can completely see why!
I’m not going to give too much away, but I highly recommend going to get yourself a bottle because, taste wise, it’s incredible. Pineapple is where it’s at! But the history I learned from reading the stories printed on the label were so much fun! Charles Dickens fans, this is a must. You’ll see why! History of Mixology fans, this is a must. You’ll see why! General fans of rum, this is a must! I promise.
I’ve spent this week working on a fun cocktail recipe involving this rum, but I’m sure I’ll have more to share in the near future! I love experimenting with mixing and cocktails, and this rum is especially fun.
So the name of this cocktail may become a bit clearer once you obtain a bottle of this stuff for yourself and read the story behind it, but here is my first concoction involving this happy spirit…
The West Indian Daiquiri
>> WHAT YOU NEED <<
1 1/2 ounces Plantation Pineapple Rum
3/4 ounces fresh lime juice
1 ounce fresh pineapple juice
1/4 ounce simple syrup
(( Don’t forget about the measurement cheat sheet at the end of this post that turns ounces into things like cups/tablespoons! ))
>> WHAT YOU DO <<
Combine all ingredients with ice into a shaker and give it all a good shake. Strain into a coupe glass and serve immediately. Garnish with a pineapple and ENJOY!
You can get yourself a bottle at Colony Wine Market in Madison so you can try this sippin’ gem for yourself! They can also share more cocktail ideas with you!
What all are you folks getting into this weekend? I’d love to hear! Share away! And thanks, as always, for visiting! XO and cheers!
