Rum and Mango Batida

Mango is the king of tropical fruits. Sweet condensed milk is a sweetener I cannot resist. What can be better that mango when it’s mango season in Florida (and Venezuela too) and sweet condensed milk? This Ron de Venezuela and mango batida. Cheers!

Ode to the Onion

After I posted my onion, and onion and more onion majadra… it was obvious that I love onions. Chilean poet Pablo Neruda too. Here is his ode... to the onion... to celebrate today Savoir Faire is turning 2. Please don't cry.

Where have you been all my life? (Rum Raspberry Batida)

Literally, a batida (shaken) is a smoothie. In Brazil, batidas are made of their national spirit cachaça, fruit and sweetened condensed milk, all blended with ice. Most popular batidas are made with passion fruit, coconut and lemon.

1, 2, 3 Mixed Berries Rum Marinade

Inspired by The King of Cocktails, Dale Degroff —who has a similar recipe in his book The Craft of Cocktails— I came up with this recipe, the first one of my #RumChallenge.

Here is the deal. Now that I live in Florida and I can buy Ron de Venezuela around the corner, I’m challenging myself. I’m going to create, develop, adapt or simply post 30 recipes with Santa Teresa Añejo during the next 90 days. Why Santa Teresa Añejo? Because I love cocktails and this is the perfect rum to mix tropical cocktails.

Happy 4th, Happy 5th and a Guarapita Toast to Freedom!

                                                                                                                                                             Photos courtesy: Ron Santa Teresa
Because today is 4th of July and we celebrate the birth of this amazing country and its independency from the British Crown back in 1776. Because rum is the spirit of the ’76 American Revolution.

Majadra (Lentils with Rice)

I love Middle East food and to celebrate my birthday, last week my friend Ilse took me to lunch to Harvest Delights, a very respectable restaurant specialized in Middle East food, in Doral.
