Falernum is idigenous to Barbados, where Velvet Falernum is a longtime staple item of its many resorts and bars. The sweetness, spice and almond character of this rum-based liqueur provides weight and texture to classic rum and wine punches. Today, Falernum is a staple for tropical drinks such as swizzles, Zombies, and other Tiki drinks. Try the island favorite with 2 parts aged rum, 3 dashes Angostura and a squeeze of lime. Add to wine and orange juice for a quick, delicious Sangria. John D Taylor’s Velvet Falernum is considered by many as the original Falernum, and is today produced by famed rum distiller R.L. Seale Ltd.
Velvet Falernum’s high sugar weight and supporting flavorings make it ideal for use as an improved simple syrup, adding depth to daiquiris, mojitos, and sangria. The creamy texture from almond is critical to many tiki drinks, and the spice notes compliment aged rums in Old-Fashioned-style cocktails. Splash a little Velvet Falernum on some berries for a quick dessert, or incorporate into coffee or iced tea for an exotic touch.
