Rum and Cachaça
There’s a lot more to rum than Strawberry Daiquiris and Pina Coladas. And while the Caribbean is well known for its rum production, quality rum is being made almost everywhere these days — even right here in America. Most rum is made from molasses, which comes from refining sugar cane. Brazilian Cachaca and France’s Rhum Agricole are made directly from the juice of the sugarcane. Now many rums are barrel-aged (similar to whiskey), and are at their best enjoyed neat, with a couple rocks, or with a splash of water.
The different ages and colors only add to the many rum choices. So whether you’re looking to try something sip-able, fruity and fun, or just a change from the Captain and Coke routine, we’ve got your back with Hooch recommendations and cocktails.
