What to Do with Coconut Rum Seasoning

Pepper Palace Coconut Rum Seasoning is sweet, salty, tropical, and spiked with…yes, rum! This unique spice mix is incredibly versatile and makes any recipe ready for a party!

Whaat!? Coconut Rum Seasoning? Does that mean I can make anything taste like my favorite cocktail? Hate to break it to ya but…no.

Unless you cook or bake with actual rum, you won’t taste that much booze. On the other hand, you will experience a tropical flavor so legit that you’ll start speaking pirate (yo-ho, yo-ho!). Instead of whipping out the shredded coconut or bottle of rum, you can easily sprinkle this stuff on anything to lend it some island flair. 

The awesome people at Pepper Palace believe that awesome products create awesome food and even more awesome memories. That’s just what I like to hear. Using this seasoning will not only dress up that bland piece of chicken, but it’ll also make cooking more fun! Imagine seeing this jar in your spice cabinet and thinking, “hmm, what pirate-style meal can I make tonight?” 

I love a spice blend that inspires creativity. For beginner cooks especially, this mix is an easy, safe way to add exciting new flavor to your everyday dishes. I’ve added it to roasted nut mix and sprinkled it on Hawaiian pizza, with plenty leftover to experiment more.
