How to Make the Cabal Rum Royale

Cabal Royale

Cabal Rum Royale

"During my travels around the Caribbean and Cuba, I was introduced to the Mojito’s long-lost cousin: the Negrón. It is a flavourful cocktail that calls for rum, honey, lime, basil and soda. The areas where the Negrón was traditionally enjoyed were sugar producing areas but the locals rarely had access to ‘’white gold’’ as it was way too expensive and meant only for export. This is why we often see honey used in recipes whose modern adaptations would call for sugar.
People always ask me if I mean ‘’Negroni’’ when I talk about this incredible cocktail. I always make sure to use the opportunity to introduce them to this mystical drink, followed by long rants about how it should be more popular than the Mojito. The Cabal Royale is a reinvention of the Negrón, bringing new life into the forgotten classic."
