Rum Alchemy II

It's this time of the year again. The weekend before last I made my way to Borough Market afresh to obtain selected ingredients for another round of flavor Infused Rum. I bottled and mixed the dried fruits and spices on the day. Now it's going to take the three bottles at least a couple of weeks – ideally around three months – to unfold their flavors and sync together perfectly. The most important thing is patience and a weekly shake. I'm also rather curious how they will turn out compared to the ones from last year. It's less sugar and a bit more fruits this time. Maybe for these three I will get around to do what I wanted last time and design some labels for the infused rum. Let me introduce the cast:

Some say Alcohol influences Creativity...nice to see that Creativity can also influence alcohol.

looks awesome, I bet if you eat the fruit after a couple of months you'll be drunk as a skunk.

I've always felt that the best addition for rum is ice cubes and a stir straw. :)
