I’ve been really loving rum cake lately. It is a very versatile cake that is infinitely adaptable. I’ve previously featured my chocolate rum cake, which I fill with spices that remind me of Ethiopia. This cake uses more traditional flavors, though I opted to use fresh macerated strawberries on top instead of the dried fruits often found inside the rum cakes of the Caribbean. You can find a version of this cake at my new restaurant, Marcus’ Bermuda, located inside the Hamilton Princess and Beach Club.

Blueberry Caipirinha

Blueberry Caipirinha

If you’ve never been to Brazil, one place to sample the country’s fun and relaxed culture is on West 46th Street off 6th Avenue in New York, a block known as Little Brazil. Brazilian culture thrives on the street, especially during the World Cup, when soccer fans throng to the restaurants to feast on feijoda and drink caipirinhas. I add an American slant to the traditional drink with the addition of blueberries, a native fruit that thrives in the cool climates of America’s northern states.

Rum Hot Chocolate

There's no more warming drink on a cold winter's day than hot chocolate spiked with rum. My version is spiced with tropical flavors, adding an island zing when the weather is frigid.

There’s no more warming drink on a cold winter’s day than hot chocolate spiked with rum. My version is spiced with tropical flavors, adding an island zing when the weather is frigid. Sweet and rich, it doubles as a dessert on its own, too.

Rhum Clement ‘Ti Punch Recipe

Rhum 'Ti Punch

No, it’s not a misspelling. While rum has been the bastard child of the liquor family (at least to most Americans who rely on the cheap stuff to put in their Rum & Cokes), good rum is having a moment. While the “real” stuff is produced in Martinique, you can find some of the best quality rums at your local store. Just do your research to find your favorite ones, then bring it home to make this super easy and super refreshing cocktail to start your weekend (or weekday evening) right.

Tradition has it that ‘Ti Punch should be served chacun prépare sa propre mort, roughly “each prepares his own death,” meaning that the ingredients should be laid out on a table to allow people to make their own concoction. Whatever method you choose, it’ll suit you to a Ti’.

Got the rainy day blues? This warm hot caramel buttered rum cocktail is sure to warm you up no matter what weather is thrown your way this weekend. Drinking hot buttered rum on cold days dates back to the colonial days in the States. But the difference between this cocktail and other buttered rums is that a bit of Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka is added for a rich caramel and butter flavor. Read More

One special drink we offered that night, and turned out to be in high demand, was the Don’s Kiss.
