Island Prayer

Island Prayer (blessing to calm a storm)
1 part Domaine de Canton Ginger Liqueur
2 parts Appleton Jamaican Rum
2 teaspoons Orange Blossom Honey
Juice of 1/4 of a Lime
splash of Pineapple juice

Add all ingredients to a pint glass full of ice. Cap and shake until well chilled. Strain into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish with an orange ribbon twist and thin half moon lime slice, floating.

I've created this drink for the many island and coastal communities that have been affected by tropical weather. Living on a barrier island off the east coast of Florida, I have had the fortune of survival through these storms. I intended for it to be a fresh, pure, and simple recipe to make quickly. May the powers that be have mercy. As I create, Jamaica and beyond are in weather's path.
