Tips for preparing rum
Let's get into the thick of it ! Here are the tips and tricks we give you for a successful preparation.
To start, the choice of rum. Traditionally, this beverage is prepared with the famous "Charrette » Rum from Reunion Island. However, if you wish you can prepare your rum arranged with white rum or whichever you prefer.
Then, it is important to choose the right container. Preparing an arranged rum is quick and easy, however the maceration time is relatively long. In fact, the more you let your drink rest, the more taste your arranged rum will have. For long maceration, it is best to provide an airtight glass jar.
In connection with the previous point, we advise you to leave your preparation macerated for three months or even more! (6 months minimum for vanilla rums) Our tip: let it sit at room temperature, ideally between 24 -27 degrees. Do not put the mixture in the refrigerator or expose to a temperature exceeding 35 degrees!
Choose the ingredients: in a rum preparation, you can put fruits, spices, leaves and even flowers! The most important thing is what you want your flavor to be. We recommend the : exotic arranged rum pineapple slices, vanilla and spice leaves ... ideal if you are a fan of the Pacific or Indian ocean islands! A tip: the traditional recipe includes the use of dry raisins;)
To put or not to put sugar… that is the question! We advise you not to put too much sugar when preparing an arranged rum. It is better to wait for the end of the maceration period and taste to adjust. Why ? Quite simply because during the maceration time, the fruits released their sugars which were mixed with the preparation. Opt for cane sugar by preparing a homemade syrup, it's better !
