Tips for making Spiced Rum as a Homemade gift:

Find the most fun bottle you can at the store to use as the base for your recipe, and then fill it back up with your homemade version. You want your gifts to have a little flair don’t you? I love this bottle Mom had at home that was just perfect for our self brewing needs. All we needed were some spices and orange peel and we were in business. Maybe I should sell this goodness! It’s like gold.

Are Dark Rum and Spiced Rum the same thing?

Dark Rum has simply been aged longer. The darker the rum, the longer its been aged. People will also add caramel or molasses to darken the color. Spiced Rum is different in that ingredients other than sugars are added to create a spicy and deep flavor. It’s great paired with Coke! (Rum and Coke is one of the most popular drinks ever created!)
