juiced
1 bar-spoonful powdered sugar

Ingredient: powdered sugar

Also Known As:  Superfine sugar What it is:  Additive
Very fine powdered sugar. In industrial food production, it is used where a quick dissolving sugar is required. Powdered sugar is generally mixed with cornstarch, wheat flour, or calcium phosphate to improve its flowing ability, and thus it is not generally used to sweeten beverages, but is used as a garnish.

3 dash Jamaica rum

Ingredient: Jamaica rum

What it is:  Rum
Generic term for dark rum from Jamaica. Dark rum differs from gold in that some residual molasses is retained in the final product, in order to slightly sweeten the flavor. Very popular in the late 1800s and superior to most New England rums. Modern approximations include Inner Circle, Gosling's Black Seal and Pusser's Navy Rum.
