Mr R and I were invited to a cocktail masterclass hosted by Nalini the owner of the hotel - Le Grand Courlan - we stayed in on the island. She was in London for a visit and organised a get together for a few friends and people who had been at Le Grand Courlan or its sister hotel, Grafton Beach Resort.
TT Liquor (our host for the evening) to include El Jimador Tequila, apricot liqueur, lime, pink grapefruit juice and sugar syrup.
Two more cocktails to make in our groups, first the Grafton Sunset made with tequila, Amaretto, Grenadine syrup and orange juice.
Well guess what! My team won the cocktail invention with our brand new cocktail which we named the Tobago Teaser - a subtle little concoction designed to tease you into visiting Tobago for yourself!!
Into your cocktail shaker add:
2 shots of rum
1 shot of Passoa (Passion Fruit Liqueur)
1 shot Chambourd (Raspberry Liqueur)
Juice of 1/2 lime
Top up shaker with ice
Shake, strain and pour into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish with a thin slice of pink grapefruit and mint sprig threaded onto two mini skewers and ballenced on the rim of the glass.
I hope you enjoy making the cocktail but here's a thought - why not visit Tobago and Le Grand Courlan Resort and who knows you may be able to order one at the bar!
