A liquor distilled from fermented sugarcane juice or molasses. Most of the world’s rum comes from the Caribbean. Puerto Rico’s white or silver rum is clear and light in body and flavor. The Puerto Rican golden and amber rums have a deeper color and a flavor to match. Dark, rich and full-bodied best describes Jamaican and Cuban rums. The sugarcane that grows along Guyana’s Demerara River produces the darkest, strongest and richest of all, Demerara rum. This slightly sweet liquor is used in a variety of cocktails including the cuba libre, mai tai, daiquiri and piña colada.
