What do you get when you distill a neutral spirit with juniper berries and botanicals? The answer: gin, the clear spirit that’s been the life of the party since the 17th century. That distinct piney flavor you taste? It’s all thanks to the juniper berries. And let’s not forget about the myriad of botanicals that give gin a flavor profile like no other.
So, let me tell you about a pirates favorite drink, rum! This clear spirit hails all the way from the beautiful Caribbean in the 17th century. It is made by distilling fermented sugarcane juice or molasses, which gives it a sweet taste and a fruity aroma that will make your taste buds feel like they’re in the tropics. If that wasn’t enough to make you love the alcohol, it’s the star of infamous tropical cocktails like daiquiris and mojitos. So, why not bring a little piece of paradise to your glass? Grab a bottle of rum and let the island vibes flow.
If you’re looking for a drink to make you think your Spanish after a few shots, look no further than tequila. Amigos, the clear spirit that’s been around since the 16th century in good ol’ Mexico is made from the blue agave plant, grown mainly in the Jalisco region. Let me tell you, aside of it’s ability to get the party started, it has a unique flavor profile that’s earthy, herbaceous, and spicy all in one shot. Literally, take a shot of it or mix it up in a margarita, paloma, or tequila sunrise, and you’ve got yourself a fiesta in your mouth!
