Caribbean flavours for the Bank Holiday

Whether you’re heading to Notting Hill to soak up the riddims and wine-up your waist for Carnival or keeping it low key at home, it would be rude not to celebrate the last Bank Holiday before Christmas without a cocktail. Here are a couple of simple recipes – one alcoholic, one not – to bring a nice glow to your cheeks whatever the weather decides to do with itself…

Tropical Bubbly

15ml Monin Caribbean syrup
10ml Monin Ginger syrup
30ml light rum
Soda water

Pour ingredients into a glass filled with ice cubes. Top with soda water. Stir and serve.

Caribbean Frappe (mocktail)

10ml Monin Caribbean syrup
20ml Monin Vanilla syrup
1 shot espresso
70ml milk

Pour ingredients in a shaker. Add ice cubes. Spindle mix for 10 seconds. Pour into cocktail glass filled with ice cubes.
