Tears from heaven
Martini uses rum that’s made with rainwater
Next stop, the Caribbean! What better way to get us thinking of summer fun than drinking a tropical drink. The Caribbean Tear martini captures the flavours of pineapple, orange and a light rum infused with nine spices. Cruzan Rum uses rain water as its water source — tears from the heavens, legend has it.
Ingredients 11/2 oz. Cruzan 9 Spiced Rum 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
2-3 oz. pineapple juice Garnish with a pineapple wedge
Ice a martini glass to chill it while you make the martini. In a shaker, combine all ingredients over ice. Discard the ice used to chill the glass. Now strain the martini into the chilled martini glass.
If you prefer more fruity flavour variations, replace Grand Marnier with Bols Banna or Bols Apricot. For a splash of colour use Bols Blue.
