Love ’em or hate ’em?

I, for one, love it. As a child, I couldn’t get enough of sour treats, and the more tart, the better. There was something inherently fun in eating something so bold in flavor that it would elicit a face scrunching, eye tearing expression. It sounds masochistic, but I know I’m not the only one. I find that people who love kumquats, those little nuggets of sweet and sour, have a similar penchant for tartness.

Mouth puckering delights are still a favorite, but I also like to temper the flavors and balance it with sweetness. If you’ve never tried kumquats before, I have the perfect way for you to ease in to it. Sweet and tangy, I think you’ll really love this Kumquat Lemongrass Rum Cocktail that I am sharing today on Wayfair.com.

Think of it as lemonade for grownups. If you’re a kumquat doubter, I know you’ll be convinced.

      It’s wet and gloomy here, too, Dara, but this will definitely bring a splash of spring! Stay warm today!

      What a lovely, lovely tart. Thank you for sharing that! I do agree, that both would be a great way to try kumquats. Perhaps even better if together :)

    Love kumquat’s. I have a friend whose neighbor has a tree and I am so jealous. I would eat everything right off the tree. Like you sour candies are my favorite. I would eat sour skittles until the roof of my mouth hurt. Now that is masochistic. This drink sounds amazing! Pinned.
