The acidity (ph) of ethanol is relatively neutral (roughly equivalent to water), so milk and creams will typically mix fine with ethanol. In fact, it's the basis of many popular alcoholic beverages, like and "egg nog" (which is a spirit, a whole egg, cream, and simple syrup), or the White Russian (vodka, coffee liqueur and milk). Milk or cream-...

When it comes to what is socially accepted in the US, ice is mostly reserved for the harsher stuff like bourbon and scotch. The ice serves a purpose of diluting the liquor, thus making it smoother on the way down. It serves a purpose for different whiskies that have harsher spice notes. Tequila, vodka, brandy, cognac, and rum should be put in the freezer ...

What is a “Boston Particular?” First of all here is the exact quote in question: It is almost certain that “the first Americans and Persians to interact in person” were not missionaries but “rum traders.” Even then, in spite of public pretenses of piety, Iranians were and still are great consumers of what was called “Boston Particular (rum laced with ...

There is nothing different about the distillation of rum. Just like with whiskey, brandy, vodka, etc. no sugar comes off the still. What does happen a lot in the rum industry is the post distillation addition of rum, as referenced in Eric's answer (the author at Alcademics - Camper English - has done a lot of research on sugar in rums). Sugar can have ...

I would recommend "Appleton White" from Jamaica. It's a blend of column still and pot still rum, and pot still destillation tends to produce a more flavourful spirit. You might also want to look into rhum agricole. it's not destilled from molasses but from sugarcane juice. it's a different flavour profile, but for me, it's more intense.

My choice for a light rum with a strong flavor is Leblon. It is made from fresh cut sugarcane unlike Bacardi (which is made from molasses), and is only aged for 6 months so you don't get any notes from the barrel. But more importantly, it's reasonably priced (~$23 for 750ml) and widely available throughout the US. You'll often see it at bars for those not ...

It will vary based on the quantity of tea as well, but a day or two should be plenty. I have not done tea in rum but I did 4 teabags of Lapsang Souchong in a bottle of bourbon, and that only took a day or two. You can always infuse for longer if you need to, I would recommend tasting after 24 hours.

I don't have any prior knowledge so I Googled the answer. According to this site and this other site, sugar doesn't make it past distillation. However, sugar is often added after distillation in rum.

Ice in any spirit is always about personal preference. Adding ice does two things to any spirit, regardless of category: It lowers the temperature, slowing down evaporation of the ethanol, making the spirit more pleasant to smell and softer on the palate. It dilutes the spirit, again softening the effect of the ethanol on your palate. Some people will opt ...

I find rum good when it is served neat, but then I am far from a connoisseur on the subject of rum. It really is an amazing drink because it’s made in so many different places and in so many different ways (white, aged, agricole, black strap, spiced, etc). The following may be helpful in drinking rum: Most spirits are distilled to 40 percent alcohol by ...

What is happening is that you are burning off most of the alcohol before you consume it. I can't tell you the exact amount, but it's significant. I would say that it's probably less than 10% alcohol by the time you drink it. That's why you don't have a hangover.

Unofficially, Porcopedia states that a rummery is an Alcohol production building. it is like the Cider Mill, Wine cellar and Brewery.

Vodka has a calorie density of 231 kcal per 100g. It's known empirically that a person gains 1 lb of weight for every extra 3500 kcal of food he consumes (4000 kcal per lb is also the calorie density of fat) So the thermodynamics of it is as follows: for every 100g of vodka you consume, you gain 30g of fat. As a rough, and easy to remember estimate, the ...
