Flavor profiles: Falernum #4, phase II

April 16th, 2008 by Colonel Tiki

Finishing the Falernum

After more than three days of infusing the prior ingredients, it was time to strain, press, and complete Falernum #4.

Finishing the Falernum

Falernum #4 ingredients, cont.
3 cups simple syrup
1½ cups fresh lime juice


The sunlight was intoxicatingly shining on these halved limes.

You can see the spent remains of the macerate.

Squeezing the Cheesecloth

I twist the cheesecloth and squeeze every last tidbit of flavorful liquid.

Falernum #4

After combining the infused rum liquid, lime juice and simple syrup together, I shook to combine. This produced nearly one half gallon of falernum for bottling and storage. It will last me about three months.

To test and toast my newly born falernum #4, I whipped up a Corn ‘n’ Oil.
