This rum lemon cocktail is the drink of choice for my daughter and I when we want to unwind after a long day.
The ingredients may seem complicated to some, but they’re really not. The key is that they’re not that complicated. My recipe calls for two ounces rum (with no sugar) and one ounce lemon juice (with no sugar).
The recipe calls for the use of rum and lemon juice, so if you’re not a fan of the taste of alcohol, you probably won’t need to bother with it. I did however make a few variations though, to make it as spicy as we liked it.
The ingredient list is a bit involved but you can read the recipe on our website.
The recipe does say to use a rum-based spirit but the only one I tried was black currant with white grapefruit juice. The one I tried seemed to have a really good flavor and was easy to use.
Another difference between the recipe from our website and the one that I made is that I used two different kinds of rum. The one I used was a rum and vodka kind which was a mix of rum and vodka and I think that was the one that I liked the best. It’s more sweet and more rum like than the ones we use in our recipe. I also used orange juice to add more flavor to the cocktail so I suppose that could be why I liked it as much as I did.
I think that I had to add some ice to the finished product because rum lemon cocktail was one of those things that seemed to have a very short shelf life. It only lasted two hours before it was gone. I’ve had quite a few cocktails like this over the years and I know that they last a long time, but I don’t think I’ve ever had one go past two hours.
This is one of those cocktails that needs to chill to get all of the flavors. If you want to use this cocktail it should be chilled before you add the ice. If you want to use it for a cocktail party, it should be chilled then topped with a wedge of lime. For a party with a few friends, I would recommend chilling it first. Another option is to let it sit for a few hours in the refrigerator to get the flavors to mellow out.
The first time I made this drink, I thought I had the most refreshing lemon and lime concoction I had ever had. Then I realized it was just the base of a drink I could drink all day. That’s why it’s a good idea to chill the base before making it. I could have just chilled the base down and it would have been a great drink.
Lime. It has a refreshing punch that’s like a lemon flavor. The flavor is so refreshing I’m not sure I’d recommend a bottle, but it’s a good idea to chill it down before making it.
