Smoked Rum recipes

Pecan Sour

by TJ Drake

Difficulty Level: Medium +

Our Smoked Rum is a very unique product. We infuse a house-made liquid smoke, produced from pecan chips, into our platinum rum for a tasty, campfire-like flavor. This fun riff of a traditional whiskey sour is light and refreshing with a hint of the outdoors. The Smoked Rum adds a nice subtle pecan aroma to the cocktail.

Caramel Simple

1 cup sugar

6 oz water (divided)

  • Place sugar and 2 ounces (1/4 cup) water into a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan over high heat. Whisk gently until sugar has dissolved and mixture comes to a rolling boil. If necessary, use a wet pastry brush to remove any sugar crystals from the sides of the pan.
  • Allow mixture to continue cooking over high heat, WITHOUT STIRRING, until it has reduced slightly and becomes golden amber in color.
  • Stand back from the pan slightly and carefully add remaining 4 ounces of water. CAUTION: The mixture will pop and sputter as you do this, so please be careful. (Keep a bowl of cold ice water nearby to plunge your hand into should it become burned)
  • Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking until mixture has reduced slightly and is sticky between your fingers (Let the syrup cool slightly before it touches your fingers so that you don’t burn yourself!)
  • Transfer liquid to a heatproof container. If covered and refrigerated, syrup will stay good indefinitely.

Charred Marshmallow Simple

Char a bag of marshmallows over a fire (char to personal preference, I like’m burnt!), remove from stick and place into container. Start a simple syrup with 2 cups water and 1 cup sugar. Bring to a boil and add marshmallows 4-5 at a time. Continue to stir. Marshmallows WILL foam, continue to stir and take off heat when necessary. When all marshmallows have melted completely into syrup, take off burner and let cool. Pour cooled liquid through a fine mesh strainer to sift out any large pieces of charcoal.
