Aruba, island cocktail

Part of the Dutch Antilles, Aruba is tucked away in the Southern Caribbean just 17 miles off the Venezuelan coast. It is ringed with beautiful beaches and is a major stopping port for cruise ships. The website Visit Aruba has a list of the island’s better known cocktails. This one isn’t on that list.

Tasting notes: Elegant complexity with elusive bright bitters. Perfect pre-dinner to stimulate the appetite, or after a heavy meal to soothe. A damned good drink.
