“One Love” Jamacian Rum Cocktail

“One Love” Jamaican Rum Cocktail

When I go to Central Market I check out their soda aisle to find interesting drinks to use in cocktails. Fentiman’s is a brand that has some interesting flavors that all have some herbal notes in them. I usually buy a few of each and keep them in stock.

The orange and the ginger somehow had me thinking Jamaican Rum.   Not too shabby.  Could be paired nicely with Chinese, Indian or Thai food.

Two drinks
1 Fentiman’s Mandarin and Seville Orange Jigger Soda
6 oz of Jamaican Rum
1 oz of Orange Liquor
Grated Ginger

Add your liquor and ginger, stir and top with soda.

Bourbon and Ginger Ale with a twist of lime. Fentiman’s specializes in floral notes. In addition to a biting ginger taste you get some bonus floral tastes.

6 oz of Knob Creek Bourbon Whiskey
2 oz of Fentiman’s Ginger Beer
Twist of lime (just the peel)

If you like it sweeter you can hit it with sugarcane syrup or increase your ginger beer.
