About this Cocktail

My 100th drink on BarNotes!

Lord Invader was the stage name of Rupert Grant (pictured) who was a Calypso star in Trinidad and wrote the lyrics to Rum & Coca Cola which became a massive hot in 1945 for The Andrews Sisters.

To make the cola syrup boil the following for 20 minutes

500ml water

30g dark muscovado sugar
Star anise
Cinnamon stick
Vanilla pod
Zest of a lime, a lemon and an orange

1/2tsp citric acid crystals

  • 1.5oz Green Island light rum
  • 1oz Wray & Nephew overproof white rum

Shake hard until your hands shiver. Strain and adorn the glass with a peel & flesh disk of lime.
