Owney's Rum Caipirinha

Last week, we visited our neighbors at The Noble Experiment, a unique craft distillery that's behind our favorite white rum: Owney's Rum. Distilled in Bushwick, Brooklyn from 100% American cane molasses, 

Owney's Rum is supremely sippable and has distinct aromas of pineapple and tropical citrus. And The Noble Experiment is the only completely female-operated distillery in the US, how rad is that? The flavors of Owney's Rum pair perfectly with citrus so this week we decided to mix up our take on the classic Caipirinha.

The Caipirinha is the national drink of Brazil and usually consists of lime, sugar and Cachaça (a Brazilian spirit similar to rum). Here, we've mixed it up a bit by using Owney's Rum and Key Limes to create the Owney's Rum Caipirinha. Fresh Key Limes, demerara cane sugar cubes and water get muddled directly in a rocks glass. Add Owney's Rum and ice, give it a good stir and garnish with a key lime slice. The result: a super simple cocktail that highlights the flavors of this amazing rum.
