Queen's Park Hotel Super Cocktail

02/26/2017 , 2m, 59s

I highly recommend Beachbum Berry's book on Carribean drinks. It's not just a recipe book, it's a narrative of the history of tropical drinks in the region. His writeup on the Queen's Park Hotel will definitely not convince you spend a night there, but this cocktail would be one good reason to do so.

Try it with both gold and white rums.

  • 1 1/2 ounce rum, gold or white
  • 1/2 ounce Italian vermouth
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce grenadine
  • 4 dashes Angostura bitters

Place all the components in a shaker with ice, shake vigorously. Strain into a coupe, and garnish with a lime wheel.
