Madagascar Stories and Tips

Rhum Arrange

This is a must-try beverage while you are in Madagascar. (There should be an accent over the 'e' in arrange). These are rums that have essentially been infused with local fruits or spices... or both. Fruits, vanilla, or cinnamon are added to a jar full of rum for extended maturation--no less than 6 months, some for several years. You can find these all over the country. I recommend the ones at La Varangue and Chez Suzette restaurants (try the orange version at La Varangue). In general, cinnamon, vanilla, and pineapple tend to be the most popular flavors. Good ones are very smooth, and others are very, well, harsh.
