Rum and Rhubarb
The Rum & Rhubarb is an original drink from our Kocktail curator Neil Donachie. Featuring rich and woody añejo (the Spanish word for aged) rum, which is premium rum that is aged in wooden casks for at least a few years. The casks impart a warm and heady flavour into the rum that simply can’t be found in standard white or even dark rum.
After a little research we found that Añejo is the perfect base spirit to pair with the freshest lime juice, fine and tart rhubarb liqueur, some vanilla syrup for more depth and dry Carpano vermouth to balance the cocktail with a bit of a bitter-sweet edge.
