Why Mint Infused Rum?

Mint infused rum brings a vibrant and aromatic dimension to beverages. The combination of mint's coolness and rum's warmth creates a harmonious blend that's perfect for sipping on a warm day or adding an extra layer of complexity to mixed drinks.

When you indulge in the art of creating mint infused rum, you're embarking on a sensory adventure. The mint's invigorating aroma is known for its ability to soothe and refresh, while the rum's rich, sugarcane essence provides a robust backdrop for the mint's zesty character. Together, they form a symphony of flavors that can enhance any occasion.

Creating Your Mint Infused Rum

Let's dive into the process of infusing rum with the essence of mint and the sweetness of strawberries to create a unique strawberry infused rum that will tantalize your taste buds.


  1. Preheat your water bath to a precise 155 degrees F (68 degrees C) using your Vesta Precision sous vide machine for optimal infusion.
  2. Combine light rum, fresh strawberries, and mint leaves in a pint-sized jar or utilize a vacuum sealed bag with the help of Vesta Precision's Handheld Vac ‘n Seal or Vertical Vac Elite for an airtight infusion.
  3. If opting for a jar, secure the lid to "finger tight" to ensure a proper seal without over-tightening. Give the jar a gentle shake to merge the flavors.
  4. Place your infusion vessel into the water bath and let the magic happen for 1 to 3 hours, allowing the mint and strawberry to fully infuse the rum.
  5. Once infused, carefully remove the vessel from the water bath, let it cool for 30 minutes on a towel, then strain the rum to remove the solids. Transfer the mint infused rum into an airtight container and refrigerate, ready to be the star of your next cocktail.

Enjoying Your Infusion

Now that you've crafted your own strawberry infused rum, it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Serve it over ice for a simple yet sophisticated drink, or use it as the base for a variety of cocktails. Here are some ideas:

  • Mix with soda water and a squeeze of lime for a refreshing spritzer.
  • Combine with tropical juices for a fruity punch that's perfect for parties.
  • Create a twist on the classic mojito by using your mint infused rum for an extra minty kick.

Remember, the key to a successful infusion is precision and patience. With Vesta Precision's equipment, you'll be able to achieve the perfect balance of flavors every time. The process of creating mint infused rum is not just about mixing ingredients; it's about engaging with every sense and savoring the anticipation of that first delightful sip.
