Rum: Rum is a liquor made by fermenting and then distilling sugarcane molasses or sugarcane juice. The distillate, a clear liquid, is usually aged in oak barrels. Rum is produced in nearly every sugar-producing region of the world, such as the Philippines, where Tanduay is the largest producer of rum globally
Ginger beer: Ginger beer is a carbonated beverage that is made from ginger, sugar, and water. It has a strong, spicy flavor with a hint of sweetness. The ginger flavor is often intense and can be described as a combination of ginger spice and ginger root. The sweetness in ginger beer varies depending on the brand, but it is generally not as sweet as traditional soda. The carbonation adds a slight effervescence to the drink, making it a popular mixer in cocktails. Some ginger beers might have a slight hint of citrus, and some other spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. When used in cocktails, ginger beer adds a unique, spicy kick to the drink, and can balance out the sweetness of other ingredients. The carbonation also adds a refreshing quality to the drink. When used in a Dark 'n' Stormy or Moscow Mule, the ginger beer helps to complement the flavors of the rum or vodka and lime juice. When used in a Gin-Gin Mule or Penicillin, it helps to balance the flavors of gin and honey.
