Rum: The answer to all your questions
“Perhaps the best moments are experienced with a bit of chivalry.”
Well, I may present the regular reader with a bit of guns and ammo but, an unsung comrade has always garnered the appreciation of the ones who’ve known this unknown yet friendly entity.
Obviously luxury has proven itself to be a bit choosy while talking about the dazzling liquid which has been mentioned in the title itself!
Rum has garnered a fair share of appreciation in the luxurious section ofhistory. But at the same time, it has proven itself as a good friend from the medical division. Here are a few reasons why:-
The Rum can be traced back to the ancient corner of Asia, in other words the Indian and the Chinese regions. Many civilizations throughout history have mentioned the making of Rum. It was after its transportation through the naval routes that it reached Caribbean, and became valuable asset.
It also holds the reputation of being the ace among all the spirited beverages. It surely is the grand daddy of all.
Rum is also a blood thinner. This in turn helps in lowering the blood pressure, it also prevents the risk of having heart attacks. Removing blockages is also present in its already perfect CV.
Rum as painkiller
The beverage also is helpful in reducing notorious muscle pains. A normal dosage with a healthy meal on a regular basis isa perfect combination and the “Happy Meal”!
But remember! Just the normal dosage..
Rum is Osteoporosis’ Bane
The medicinal value of this liquid doesn’t end here. Rum has also proven to be the eliminating factor when it comes to Osteoporosis. While being made from the best sugarcane, they all inculcate the habit of providing the body with essential minerals. Now that’s what we’re up for!
Rum calms the mood
Rum also helps in providing soothing effects when taken in a normal and favorable dosage. When taken, it helps in the secretion of certain hormones which provide a soothing effect and hence, help the people in being at peace.
The Rum might be present on expensive party tables and secret meetings but the armed forces also find a good comrade in it. In fact, the Indian Army uses the 1965 XXX Rum which has also garnered much appreciation in the form fit for a civilian market. The highest battleground Siachen also sings its tales of bravery, and we all owe that to the Indian Army. But, in order to sustain the survivable conditions in an already harsh environment, the Rum is taken before the evening meal. It helps the soldiers in fighting off the chilling cold, while in turn giving the warmth to defend the strategic borders.
It’s true that Rum has been an ally throughout centuries but at the same time, it has also been present with a few undesirable aspects present in history. From pirates to party tables, and all the way to a nice fireplace with an open book, it has seen everything. So I guess it is up to us on how we cherish this valuable drink with responsible behavior. And as far as the memories are concerned, you won’t be disappointed.
7 things which happen when food becomes your “bae”
‘Food is something which seems to be the byproduct of nature’s precious gifts as well as your imaginative grey matter.’
Now before the reader goes all covert to know who said the aforementioned line, let’s just stick to the regular fact. Food is love! Obviously for many of us it’s not just about being exposed to the arsenal of aromas. But at the same time it’s all about filling that hungry belly with some delicious flavor bombs.
Foodies love to think about food more than anything else! That’s what they’re supposed to do right?
Well, see for yourselves:-
Kitchen becomes “The Kitchen”
When a human mind falls in love with the art of making delicious food then the first thing which comes into his/her mind is “the kitchen should necessarily be treated as a temple”. The results are glistening utensils, sharp knives, groceries aligned as if they’re the pit crew of your stomach’s NASCAR race. You’ll be surprised by the results yourselves.
Quality over Quantity
There’s a fine line between “good food” and “blissful food”. The only difference is that good food comprises of makeshift moves which help you out in the long run, whereas blissful food comprises of finely tuned components which in turn relieve your mind of the worries you’re having. Boss issues!?
You know it at the tip of your tongue
Being a foodie has many perks but the best one among all is remembering your grandma’s secret ingredient, or the correct proportions, heck even the name of a rare herb! You seem to play it all on the kitchen counter with ease and that’s what makes you awesome.
Exploring more and more
Perhaps the basic instinct is your hunger for more and more ways to improvise your so-called “catastrophic” dish which was actually pretty good. Once your obsession with food takes over your mind, the food detective inside you comes to life. And that is a thing which most of us normal humans don’t possess.
Inventions on new food!
No matter what the circumstances might be, a good foodie always searches for that particular trick which would turn his/her regular main course into something way better than what the expensive restaurants fail to offer. And hence, the term “my own creation’ comes into play.
Researching food stuff
The stuff here isn’t just some random keyword scribbled across the search engine. It is a wide spectrum which encompasses all the elements of all the great chefs around the globe. Most foodies are prone to commit acts of intense research upon the famous dishes by, you guessed it, famous chefs. Be it Gordon Ramsey or Vikas Khanna, a foodie will never leave a page unread from those savvy cook books.
Finally the most techie thing about being a foodie is his/her obsession with taking snaps of any dish those hungry eyes come across. One moment you’re ordering a cheese pizza and “click”, it just got posted on Instagram. It’s a natural instinct which rules the frontal cortex of all foodies across the globe. Particularly for those hailing from the current timeline. Now you can enjoy the bite!
It doesn’t matter where you’ve just started, what matters is your journey from just an all-time regular cook to a real maestro who rules the taste buds. Because once a foodie is always a foodie. Cheers to that grey matter of yours!
