The wind has changed, the tide is in and National Rum Day is upon us. Keep the pirates at bay with our favourite rum cocktails from producers you can find at the BBC Good Food Show Winter this November.
A-hoy rum lovers! Let’s set sail…
From the Rum & Crab Shack St Ives, we bring you Dead Man’s Fingers. A blended rum from the Caribbean isles, with spices which warm the cockles, stir the soul and get you ready for whatever the wind blows in.
Behold, the Dead Man’s Grip, a deadly combination of rum, lemon, lime, egg white, passionfruit and a splash of Benedictine that slowly creeps up on you, leaving you wanting more… Proceed if you dare!
You will need:
Shake all ingredients good and nice then strain into a short glass with lots of ice...
The Dead’s man grip is almost done, one finishing touch before the fun…
Simply garnish with a slice of lime… then sit back, relax and take your time!
From the foot of The Andes in the depths of the Terepaima National Park, the crew at Diplimatico have been producing top quality spirits for over 50 years and have achieved top ranks with rum connoisseurs across the seas.
Shake things up with a take on Bermuda's national drink, made with Venezuelan rum, spicy ginger beer and lime juice with a smooth Diplomatico Reserva rum.
To make this cocktail filled with spice, pour the rum into a glass then add your ice...
Stop for a moment and give it a cheer, then add your lime juice and ginger beer...
To get this sailing add bitters as a float, a perfect drink to bring aboard the boat!
Garnish with a wedge of lime… then shiver me timbers you’ve got a Dark Storm!
From the shores of the Philippines meet Don Papa Rum. A premium aged rum created on the fertile foothills of Mt. Kanlaon, where hand-picked sugarcane is milled to produce sweet, rich molasses and turned into the finest rum.
Drop the anchor and enjoy a Sunset by the bay, a refreshing, sweet twist on a rum cocktail. A-hoy!
You will need:
In a tall hearty glass filled with plenty of ice, add Don Papa rum to make it extra nice...
Add a splash of orange to make it sweet, then a dash pineapple to keep it neat...
Slowly add your grenadine to taste, then garnish your orange with all haste!
From the coast of Guatemala and the shores of the Caribbean, the treasure you will find is Aluna Coconut. Smooth, toasted coconut blended with delicious rums, containing a fraction of the sugar found in other rums to keep you sharp and savvy!
Try a lighter take on this classic cocktail for a sweet taste of summer.
You will need:
With this coconut cocktail, it’s all hands-on deck! So combine your ingredients together to avoid a ship wreck...
Stir with heart and soul until it’s mixed good... then add lime or mint to make to taste like it should!
Get the crew together, put the coordinates in your compass and make sail for the Birmingham NEC. The BBC Good Food Show Winter returns on the 29 November – 2 December, so make sure you join us for the ultimate foodie day out.
With plenty of spirit, heart and soul, see the likes of Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, James Martin and more! Plus, taste your way through a variety of food and drink from the UK’s top producers.
