Spiced Roasted BBQ Rum
Enzo Sisto 7 februari 2021
Born during the season opening of the Dutch foundation NBBQW in 2018, the idea of garnishing cocktails with slices of smoked and crunchy bacon to combine it with grilled meat is a classic now here in Amsterdam.
During this event in 2018 Carlo Molon, executive chef of Sheraton Como Lake, suggested some marinates for meat with rum, bourbon and gin that gave rise to memorable pairings. We published in 2018 his recipes in our BBQ magazine VUUR. Thanks again Carlo.
Pairing a good spirit or cocktail with a piece of low & slow or hot & fast meat is the new trend now. That is because I try to make a special spirit dedicated to BBQ and specially to roasted beef and veal.
Designing a "spicy roasted rum" with notes of caramel and molasses was an amazing and positive note in this difficult and complex moment that Covid19 has given us. My Enzo's SPICED BBQ RUM is a blend of exotic spices with the finest Caribbean rums. This rum will give you the real "full-flavor". Characterful yet subtle, this rum balance the Caribbean stubborn storm at sea and rustic white sandy beaches.
The flavour of caramel and molasses will enrich the complexity and his range of use.
The subtle flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and cardamom pamper your palate from the first sip. Matured in oak barrels gives his signature ending a long and smooth finish. Enjoying a SPICED BBQ RUM without meat, could be dangerous for your health. It must be always accompanied by a nice piece of beef or veal. Pure, with ice or in your favorite cocktail.
I love Daiquiri. I love the original classic Hemingway’s daiquiri but also the many variations more or less known which results changing a bit the original recipe.
"There can be many combinations with Daiquiri" says Simone Pazzano, Italian food journalist "This cocktail goes well with both roasted meats and grilled fish.” He goes on to say: “Excellent even with a vegetable fry or delicate sweets, such as a yogurt cake.”

Last time I use a smoked Daiquiri with a "Veal Chop Italian Job", a great BBQ recipe with a sauce inspired by the work of Bartolomeo Scappi, a renaissance cook who cooked for princes and popes, such as Pius IV and Pius V, in Rome.
So if you have also some fun great BBQ recipes combined with a good spirit or cocktail please write me!
Friendly regards, Enzo
