Summer is the perfect season for cocktails made with Caribbean rum. And below I share the recipes for four Caribbean rum cocktails as learnt during a recent masterclass hosted by Pure Grenada. The four summer cocktails include Nutmeg Espresso Martini, Chilli & Coconut Mojito, Grapefruit & Marzipan Daiquiri, and Zombie.
Recipes For 4 Summer Cocktails
Nutmeg Espresso Martini:
37.5ml Grenadian Rum
37.5ml Cold Brew Coffee
10ml Nutmeg Syrup
Add all ingredients and shake with plenty of ice, strain into chilled martini glass and garnish with a dusting of nutmeg.
Chilli & Coconut Mojito:
50ml Grenadian Rum
1 Full lime
Dash Coco Lopez
12.5ml Chilli Syrup
Handful Mint Leaves
Add all ingredients into a collins glass and churn with crushed ice, garnish with a mint sprig.
Grapefruit & Marzipan Daiquiri:
50ml Mount Gay Rum (unmarked bottle)
1 Blackberry muddled
1 full lime
12.5ml Orgeat Syrup
Muddle Blackberry, add all other ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a sugar rimmed glass filled with ice.
75ml Grenadian Rum
25ml Apricot Brandy
25ml Pineapple Juice
25ml Orange Juice
Shake all ingredients and Garnish with a lime husk with overproof rum and a nutmeg flame.
All the above cocktails are delicious and perfect for cooling off when temperatures sore. However, must admit that my favorite of the four Caribbean rum cocktails is the Chilli & Coconut Mojito. The mix of Westerhall — Grenadian rum, lime, Coco Lopez, chili syrup, mint leaves and crushed ice was simply delicious and oh so refreshing. So definitely will be making time and time again!
