Pot still Jamaican rum adds delicate but distinctive funky notes to this lightly sweet fruity gin-laced cocktail.


Adapted from a recipe created in 2014 by Jake Burger at The Portobello Star, London, England. Naturally, Jake's original recipe calls for Portobello Road Gin.

Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon (1900–2002), better known as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, was the wife of King George VI and the mother of Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Margaret, Countess of Snowdon. During WWII her spirit gave moral support to her subjects while in her later years she was viewed as matriarch to the Royal Family, enjoying public popularity throughout. She remained publicly active until just before her death at 101 years old, perhaps helped by her reputed love of gin and Dubonnet Red.
