5 COCKTAILS OF SUMMER!

As the summer gets hotter, cool off with these refreshing classic cocktails from the Caribbean!

Passionfruit & ginger cocktail

Recipe type: Cocktail, Drinks,
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
for the ginger passion fruit syrup
  • 200g sugar
  • 500ml water
  • 1 x 5cm piece of ginger sliced
  • pulp and seeds from 10 passion fruit
  • juice and zest of 2 lemons
to serve
  • light rum
  • soda water/sparkling water
  • fresh mint
  • lemon slices
 
Instructions
  1. To make the syrup, bring the sugar and water to a boil in a small saucepan.
  2. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the passion fruit, ginger and the lemon juice and zest and remove from the heat. Allow to cool.
  3. To serve, pour a little of the syrup into a glass filled with ice then add some light rum and fill up with soda water. Add the mint and lemon and serve.
  4. Alternatively, combine all the ingredients in a large jug.
Barbados: Black & Stormy

The Bajan take on the Bermuda-born Dark & Stormy. Pour 2 oz of dark rum (such as Mount Gay Eclipse Black or Black Barrel) into a tall, ice-filled glass, fill with ginger beer (not ginger ale), add a good squeeze of lime, and stir.

Martinique: ‘Ti Punch

More than a cocktail, it’s a ritual. Adjust proportions of sour/sweet/strong to suit your own taste: Combine 1½ oz of white rhum agricole, ¼ oz cane syrup, and ¼ oz freshly squeezed lime juice in a small glass. Stir with a swizzle stick. Add an ice cube or two if desired.

Carriacou: Sherwin Noel’s Rum Punch

In a tall, ice-filled glass, combine 1–1½ oz dark rum (such as Clarke Court’s Special Dark) and ½–1 oz overproof rum (such as Jack Iron) with ½ oz sugar syrup. Fill with a blend of fruit juices (Noel uses grapefruit, orange, pineapple, sour orange, and lime) and add a couple shakes of grenadine and Angostura bitters. Stir and grate fresh nutmeg on top.

Trinidad: Rum and Coconut Water

Combine 2 oz of golden rum (such as Angostura’s Single Barrel Reserve, only available in Trinidad; or its for-export-only Five-Year-Old) with fresh coconut water and a couple dashes of Angostura bitters.
