Chris's Bay Rum Recipe (well, she shared it with me so I'll call it hers but it's probably a traditional bay rum recipe and everyone in CA probably knows it and puts their own twist to it)*Pack jar with fresh bay leaves, add dried orange peel and whole cloves (I used a heaping half cup of each) Then, when I finished eating my orange, I stripped it of it's peel and threw that in too. Cover everything with dark Jamaican rum and shake the whole jar to "Stir it Up" by Bob Marley. Let stand for a few weeks and strain. Chris adds a little rosemary essential oil and sandalwood essential oil. oh my....it smells so great already.
