I wanted to share an amazing experience I had on a trip to the beautiful island of St. Martin. It is one of my favorite places to be on earth. The warm breeze, the relaxed atmosphere, awesome seafood, breathtaking beaches, nightlife etc.
A group of close friends, hubby and I, make it a point to travel there every year. It's become our go to place to have fun, lay back and relax. The last time we were there, we found this amazing beach restaurant that we couldn't get enough of...The staff was amazing, the food was delicious and the drinks...wow. After each of our meals (we stayed there many days, alllll day long), we would get a free after lunch, dinner shot of infused rum. The restaurant made their own infused rum with different flavors and fruits. One in particular stood out with our group. It was the ginger infused rum. The taste had just enough, ginger, rum and sweetness to it. It was just so special and I'd like to share it with you.
Things you will need:
- One cup fresh unpeeled ginger
- Two cups clear rum
- Simple syrup (or dissolved sugar)
- Clean recycled bottle
Cut off all the knobs and ugly dark ends of the ginger root.
I have two cups of sliced ginger because I also infused one cup of it with vodka. Use more or less depending on your love for ginger...cut the pieces small enough to fit through the opening of your chosen bottle.
Life is beautiful...
