Rose Hall

This cocktail is named after the Rose Hall sugar plantation on Jamaica. This colonial site is famous for its ghost stories and the legend of the White Witch. A rum cocktail by the same name

This is a much fruiter drink that uses banana to provide richness rather than creme de cacao. Here I've used MurLarkey banana whiskey instead of fake tasting creme de banane. The bonus with MurLarkey is that the banana whiskey tastes like a rich white rum and real bananas. The only downside it that it takes a half teaspoon of sugar to sweeten it to where the creme should be in order to balance the acidity. I'll make a not of that in the ingredients list. 

  • 1 oz. dark Jamaican rum
  • 1/2  oz. creme de banane (3/4 oz. MurLarkey banana whiskey and 1/2 tsp. white sugar used)
  • 1 oz. orange juice
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • lime slice for garnish

Combine all ingredients except for the garnish in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with the lime slice.
