Rum is an alcoholic beverage made by sugarcane fermentation. Not every store sells in Russia, but every lover of alcohol is obliged to drink rum.

The drink was first created by the inhabitants of Barbados. The ancient ancestor was called "kashasa". In Brazil, it is still popular. According to ancient documents, kashas was first prepared in the sixteenth century.

People used to use rum as a currency. They paid merchants for goods. Rum was much loved by sailors and pirates. And no wonder, because it is stored for a long time and retains its properties. In the same time store wine on the ship is problematic.

Rum produced on reed plantations was of poor quality until the French missionaries improved production technology.

According to history, they were the first to use distillation pipes made of copper, which were then widely used in France. Due to this, low-quality and cheap drink has become an exquisite rum.

The beginning of the nineteenth century was marked by the emergence of several well-known brands, including Bacardi and HavanaClub. Products of companies occupy a leading position in the market.

I note that drinking properly depends on the color of the drink. White rum is characterized by a lack of long-term exposure and a mild taste. Therefore, it is used for making cocktails.

Amber has a bright taste and rich color, as it is longer kept in wooden barrels. It is recommended to cool before use at home. They drink in pure form.

As for the dark, thanks to the long exposure, it has a pronounced color. Suitable for preparing dishes and cocktails, for drinking in its pure form.

There are four popular ways to drink this alcohol. In this case, the brand does not matter.

  • Undiluted. The method is chosen by men. They argue that you can enjoy the taste the only way. Use in its pure form is recommended before a meal from vodka glasses. If alcohol is served at the end of a meal, drink as cognac.
  • Rum with ice. Like the ladies. Ice cools and softens the bitter taste. Although, according to men, ice has a bad effect on the individuality, which is represented by the taste range and aromatic bouquet.
  • In the form of cocktails. The choice of youth. It is not surprising that rum is present in every night establishment. In a cocktail, the real taste is lost, but the resulting mixtures are worth it.
  • Diluted. In diluted form, people who do not like strong alcohol consume it. For these purposes, they use water or juice. Experts recommend diluting with lemon juice or fresh water from a well.
