There are a wide variety of rum flavourings on the market, including dark rum, amber rum, buttered rum and coconut rum. If you are using an essence, instructions will be on the container. If using rum extract, add to taste and possibly a bit of sugar or sweetener. See below for more instructions.

Make your own rum

To make your own rum from scratch, use molasses along with brown cane sugar to ferment a wash. You want to have a starting specific gravity of about 1.08. Don't use all molasses because it would make your wash too thick. Only about half should be molasses. Ferment to dryness then distill in a pot still.

To flavour after the fact, start with plain liquor, add some rum extract of your choice or rum essence (usually 1 to 2 tablespoons per liter is enough, but it depends on the concentration of the extract) and a couple tablespoons of molasses to a litre of alcohol. Mix very well and allow to stand for a couple days to amalgamate flavours. If you like a sweeter rum, add a bit of brown cane sugar also.
