Ginger and orange delicately spiced with cloves and fortified with golden rum. You'll need to fine strain to catch the clove shrapnel or alternatively infuse cloves in your rum. Achieving the correct dilution is key to the success of this drink.


Messianic means 'of the Messiah', so how appropriate this Christmas cocktail with gold and precious spice (at least cloves were costly back in the day). Created in October 2011 by Simon Difford at the Cabinet Room, London, England.
