Best white rum for cocktails
Skotlander White Rum has won ”Best in Class” at the Miami Rum Festival, which basically means it's a world champion white rum. So that's a good start. For the darker cocktails we use dark Skotlander Rum.
Feel free to replace the Skotlander Rum with a different brand, but be critical in your choice. Quality goes a long way – not only for the rum, but also for your fruits, syrups, berries and herbs.
You'll need a few bar tools: A shaker (or a big jar), a small strainer, a muddler and different types of glasses.
Ice Ice Baby
And then you will need all the ice you can get. For each cocktail you make, you easily use 10 – 15 ice cubes and you don't want to run out of ice. Or lime juice. Or simple syrup. You'll be surprised how much you need once you get the party started!
