Rum Review: Ti Arrangés de Ced’ Vanille Macadamia

vm1 Les Rhums de Ced’ is the personal project of Cédric Brement. He started creating rhums arrangés at home ten years before than he starts with Les Rhums de Ced’, testing his experimental products with friends and family, but, after, the friends of his friends started to order his rhums arrangés, and he decided to start with that project three years ago. Cédric had a great philosophy: he only works with fresh fruits, locally produced or transported by air, to ensure the freshness of the flavors and the aromas of the fruits. He only uses Agricole AOC Rhum from Martinique and Bourbon vanilla for his rum infusions. The fruits are cutted with knife and bottled by hand, making each bottle a handmade limited edition. [Read more…]

tbj1

Taking a look inside the cocktail book Left Coast Libations, in the chapter about the city of San Francisco, I found an interesting recipe of the bartender Yanni Kehagiaras called The Bitter End. Automatically, I needed to do it…but I wanted to make a twist on the rums…the recipe calls for a Flor de Caña Aged White 4 years rum, and I used the Rum Nation Jamaica White Pot Still.  Also, I changed the Angostura Bitters for a Jerry Thomas Own Decanter Bitters and the Velvet Falernum for Homemade Falernum.

Yes, I love the pineapples. Every day I eat about a half of a fresh pineapple for breakfast.

The other day, I was thinking about that I’ll drink a rum cola after dinner while I was cooking, and when I was hollowing a pineapple preparing it for the morning breakfast an idea comes to me…and I reserve the hollowed pineapple on the fridge.

The Perfect Storm

ps1 Yes, this is really a Dark & Stormy, the Bermuda’s national drink…but because of the trademark of this recipe by Gosling’s, if we want to call it Dark & Stormy we have to make it with Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and Gosling’s Stormy Ginger Beer…and what happens if this rum or this ginger beer dislikes us?Or if we prefer another rums or ginger beer brands? The thing what happens is what I call The Perfect Storm: The Dark & Stormy for people who wants to make the things on their way. [Read more…]
