I've cut the overproof rum by a third from the original recipe to allow the other ingredients space to shine in this delicious Martini-like, dry and spirituous
Like a rum-laced pineapple cream soda served with a wedge of lime.
Two massively flavoursome spirits and two very characterful liqueurs combine harmoniously in this delicious sour.
Take at the first sign of a cold, and then retreat under your bed covers. Repeat dose regularly while symptoms persist. Warning - do not consume with other
Robustly flavoured ingredients brought together harmoniously in a tall, most refreshing swizzle. Worthy of its legendary status.
