Library Journal

"Rum 101" lessons provide suggestions for variations, information on ingredients, and esoterica, and there are color photos throughout. For any beverage collection.

My Daiquiri

Makes 1 Cocktail

This best known of rum drinks is generally attributed to one Jennings Cox, a mining engineer stationed in Santiago, Cuba, in the sizzling summer of 1898. While he may have originally concocted it to fight off malarial infection (the rum) and scurvy (the lime), a properly made Daiquiri these days is not, in the strict sense, medicinal. My semiclassic version is potent and more than a little reminiscent of my other favorite cocktail, the Margarita. To transform this into another classic cocktail, the Bacardi, add 1 teaspoon grenadine.

A wedge of lime
Granulated sugar on a small plate
3 ounces gold rum
1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons superfine sugar
1 teaspoon curacao or other orange liqueur

Run the lime wedge around the rim of a stemmed cocktail glass. Dip the moistened rim in the sugar on the plate. Set the lime wedge and the glass aside.

In a cocktail shaker, combine the rum, lime juice, superfine sugar, and curacao. Stir with a long spoon to dissolve the sugar. Add ice cubes to fill the shaker about half full and shake well.

Half-fill the prepared glass with crushed ice if desired. Strain the Daiquiri into the glass, squeeze the lime wedge into the cocktail, discard, and serve immediately.

Rum 101 As rum comes from sugar, so it goes to sugar. You may not normally sweeten your cocktails, but I think you'll find that, when it comes to rum, a little sugar, especially when lime juice is present, nicely balances the flavor.


Rum Jerked Chicken Wings

Makes 4 to 6 Servings

Fiery hot and smoky, grilled chicken, pork, and other meats make up the Jamaicannational street dish known as "jerk." Jerk is the marinade, packed with various big Caribbean flavors, not the least of which are rum, allspice, and the ultra-hot chiles known as Scotch bonnets. (These chiles are extremely hot, so handle them with care, and use gloves if possible.) More readily available habanero chiles are close cousins, and add their unique and fruity heat to these addictively spicy chicken wing drumettes.

3/4 cup chopped yellow onion
1/3 cup chopped scallion
2 Scotch bonnet or habanero chiles, to taste, stemmed and chopped
3 tablespoons dark rum
2 1/2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger with juice
2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon Pickapeppa Sauce
3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon dry thyme, crumbled
3 pounds chicken wing drumettes

In a food processor, combine the yellow onion, scallion, chiles, rum, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, lime juice, olive oil, Pickapeppa, allspice, and thyme. Process until fairly smooth.

In a nonreactive dish, combine the onion mixture and the drumettes and marinate at room temperature for 1 hour.

Light a charcoal fire and let it burn down or preheat a gas grill (medium-low). Lay the drumettes on the rack, reserving the marinade. Grill the drumettes, turning and basting them often, until they are tender and well browned and the marinade is used up, 25 to 30 minutes. Serve hot or warm.
