10 Things Every Guy Should Know About Rum

How should rum be used when making cocktails?

"One of the challenges facing rum is the imagery people associate with the spirit is dominated by sweet, frozen-fruit umbrella drinks that taste delicious, that people think that they want when they're on vacation, a high-calorie drink that some are trying to stay away from, or that might be good for one before moving on to something else. Classic rum cocktails are not that way. A classic daiquiri includes fresh lime juice, rum, a little bit of simple syrup, and that’s it. It’s fresh, slightly sweet, crisp, and refreshing. It’s not frozen."
