Perhaps best described as being a Trinidadian Daiquiri due to its heavy use of Angostura Bitters. Perhaps also originally been made with Trinidad gold rum, Canning's Caroni Rum according to Owen Rutter. (If using homemade 2:1 pomegranate syrup rather than grenadine, use 20ml (2/3oz) and omit sugar syrup).

Recipe adapted from If Crab No Walk: A Traveller in the West Indies, a 1932 book written by British travel writer Owen Rutter, who writes of the Queen's Park Hotel, Port of Spain, Trinidad, "The cooking is good; the servants, though slow, are attentive; there is an excellent ballroom, a first-rate band, and a good bar: 'the Long Bar with the Brass Rail,' where you may drink the Queen's Park Hotel Super Cocktail."
