Aged rum sour

Aged rum sour - student project

For my project, I made a rum based sour.

  • 2 oz Zaya 12 year old aged rum
  • 1/2 oz fresh squeezed key lime
  • 1 bar spoon blackstrap molasses
  • grated nutmeg on top

I put the molasses in the bottom of my shaker and strained my lime juice over.  Stirred it with a bar spoon so that the molasses can be better able to dissolve fully.  Added rum and ice.  Shook until my hands stuck to the shaker.  Poured over ice in pre-chilled glass.  Grated fresh nutmeg to cover.

Very pleased with the results.  The molasses compliments the aged rum well as a sweetener!
