Rum Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Turbinado

When it comes to rum, every country in the Caribbean has a preferred brand. In Jamaica, it's Appleton; in Barbados, it's Mount Gay; and in the Dominican Republic, it's Brugal. I recently got my hands on a bottle of ron Brugal añejo, which is a slightly buttery, dark rum that's been aged three to six years in American oak. Naturally, I decided to use the Brugal to make a cocktail.

The Turbinado is a combination of rum, lime juice, and ginger beer. The recipe calls for demerara syrup, which is simple syrup made with sugar in the raw. I didn't have any raw sugar, so I substituted brown sugar simple syrup, which imparts a slight molasses flavor to the drink. If you're a fan of rum, I would give this refreshing, well-balanced concoction a try. It's wonderful! Here's the recipe.
