Roun Ti-fé - or what people from French Guiana call '' a small fire'' in Creole.
It is a glass of dry rum, that you drink in one gulp to '' warm your body up'' , and just after that you have to swallow a mouthful of fresh water. This is how Guianese connoisseurs traditionally drink rum.
People drink rum everywhere in French Guiana. They drink it as far as the little stalls hidden in the middle of the Guianese bush and it is always a real celebration, an authentic moment of getting together around the Guianese culture and tradition.
