Creation & Inspiration
This is quite simple. The Rum Brulee is rather similar to a Grasshopper. I was in a mood for mint chocolate chip ice-cream one day and whipped up this concoction. Mint is symbolic of eternal refreshment and wisdom. And out of all the chocolate varieties, white chocolate is said to be symbolic of eternal peace. In light of the recent war and tragedy in our world, I wanted to create a drink that carried my hopes for the upcoming months.
The strong and rich flavors of spiced rum cradles this drink in a wintery festive quality. The Rum Brulee is soothing to the eye with it’s light green color. It is sweet, refreshing and creamy to the palate. This cocktail pairs nicely with spicy food or serves as a soothing after-dinner drink. In a rather uncertain time, sip on the Rum Brulee and allow yourself the luxury of comfort and refreshment.
