What about some aged rum? They're becoming very trendy and are available to suit all wallets. All interesting but the palate of Angostura 1824 offers presents mouth-watering flavours of honey, fruit, chocolate, spices and herbs. The finish is remarkably long and flavour-packed. Doesn't that sound delicious?
Maybe something to savour on a barbeque day, brush bananas with a streak of rum and fold in foil and barbeque gently for about 10 minutes until hot and steamy. Serve with cream with a drop of rum whipped in too!
Add a splash of rum to marinades too!
