How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and strain into chilled glass.

Garnish:

Lime zest twist

Comment:

Perhaps best described as being a Trinidadian Daiquiri due to its heavy use of Angostura Bitters. Obviously it would also have originally been made with Trinidad gold rum, Canning's Caroni Rum according to Owen Rutter. Preferably make your own pomegranate (grenadine) syrup.

Origin:

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."
