Spiced Rum

rumWhat the heck is spiced rum anyway?

A cake recipe I had called for 1 tablespoon of spiced rum. Not being much of an alcohol drinker unless it tastes like fruit punch I was left scratching my head.

What to do to get a bottle without having to go to a million stores that sell alcohol. I ran a search and came up with Shellback Caribbean Spiced Rum, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, Bacardi Oakheart Spiced Rum that ranged in price from 17.99 to 24.99 for around a liter. That is a lot of rum for a non-drinker that will only make this cake maybe once a year.

So how does one make their own spiced rum?

My pantry is well stocked so I had everything I wanted to use on hand. Even a left over bottle of Bacardi and a few 40 year old bottles of Barbancourt flavored Rum that I dragged back from a cruise that stopped in Haiti.

So here is what I did. I used the components I love and what I thought would go great with this wonderful brown sugar pound cake I wanted to try.
