  • garnish lime twist


  1. Add all ingredients except the lime twist into a shaker with ice. 
  2. Shake 
  3. Pour into a coupe or martini glass and add lime twist.


*You will need to prepare a spice infused sugar syrup using star anise, cinnamon, cloves, all spice, fennel and nutmeg - all grow in abundance in Grenada! Add equal parts water and sugar, with all the spice in a pot and heat until the sugar is dissolved. Let set a few hours and then taste. If you like it, then sieve and place in a glass jar. This can be kept in the fridge.
