I HAVE fond (albeit fuzzy) recollections of this citrus-spiked creeper from a trip to St Lucia’s Ladera resort a few years ago.
As I gazed at the Pitons – which, from my mountaintop perch at the resort’s Tcholit Bar seemed almost close enough to touch – the low-hanging sun cast a golden glow and contented murmurs from the cosmopolitan crowd gathered to celebrate the sunset filled the air.
I recall thinking how lucky I was to be there, in the midst of all that beauty.
Now, back in Miami, whenever I whip up a batch of this St. Lucian Fantasy, my reality is sweetened by the sun-drenched memory.
2 ounces white rum
1 ounce orange Curacao
3 ounces orange juice
½ ounce lime juice
Shake all ingredients together. Pour into a highball glass. Enjoy.
