Our Comment:

Dark rich sugar, equally dark and richly flavoured rum, sweetened and spiced with the clove and cinnamon flavours of falernum and freshened with citrus juice. All served long with crushed ice.


This drink emerged in the early 1800s in Guyana when British ex-pats mixed this drink on the terrace of the Georgetown club.
