INTRODUCING.... THE SMOKEY REAPER
Ahoy, mateys! If you're looking for a bold and spicy cocktail to try at home, look no further than the Smokey Reaper Cocktail - a drink that would surely impress even the most daring of pirates! This cocktail is made with a combination of Smokey Ginger Rum, REAPER Chilli Rum, ginger ale, fresh lime juice, and a sprig of rosemary for garnish.
HOW TO MAKE:
To make this cocktail, start by adding a couple of cubes of ice to a tumbler glass. Next, add in 60ml of Smokey Ginger Rum, which will provide a deliciously smoky flavour with a hint of ginger. This rum is the perfect base for this cocktail and adds a depth of flavour that other rums simply can't match.
Next, it's time to add in the star of the show - REAPER Rum. This rum is infused with Carolina Reaper peppers, which are some of the spiciest peppers in the world. Add in 5 (or more if you're feeling brave) pipet drops of REAPER, and you'll instantly feel the heat. This is not a drink for the faint of heart, but if you're a fan of spicy cocktails, you'll love the kick that this rum adds.
After you've added the rums, it's time to pour in your mixer of ginger ale up to the top of the tumbler glass. This will help to balance out the heat of REAPER and provide a refreshing, bubbly texture to the drink.
To finish off the cocktail, squeeze in a dash of fresh lime juice and give it a quick stir. Finally, garnish the drink with a sprig of rosemary, which adds a lovely earthy aroma and complements the smoky flavours of the rum perfectly.
Want to pair it with the ideal dish? We've got you covered! What goes well with our Smokey Reaper:
Grilled or barbecued meats: Chilli rum pairs well with the smokey and charred flavours of grilled or barbecued meats like chicken, pork, or steak. The sweetness of the rum can also balance out the saltiness of the meat.
Spicy dishes: If you're a fan of spicy food, chilli rum can add an extra kick to your favourite dishes. Try pairing it with spicy Asian dishes like curry or stir-fry.
Fruity desserts: The sweetness of chilli rum can be a great complement to fruity desserts like pineapple upside-down cake, mango sorbet, or strawberry shortcake.
Cheese: The bold flavour of chilli rum pairs well with strong-flavoured cheeses like aged cheddar, blue cheese, or gouda.
Of course, everyone's taste buds are different, so don't be afraid to experiment and find your own favourite pairings!
The Smokey Reaper Cocktail is a unique and flavourful drink that's sure to impress your friends at your next gathering. And who knows, maybe it will transport you to the days of old when pirates would gather around a barrel of rum and spin tales of adventure on the high seas. So why not give it a try and raise a glass to the swashbuckling pirates of yore? Cheers! 🥃
