A wine-glass with lemon juice fill,
Of sugar the same glass fill twice
Then rub them together until
The mixture looks smooth, soft, and nice.
Of rum then three wine glasses add,
And four of cold water please take.
A drink then you'll have that's not bad—
At least, so they say in Jamaica.Before we get to a more modern recipe translation, we have to ask… why aren’t more recipes measured in wine glasses? And rhyming. Why don’t more of our recipes rhyme? Today’s Translation:
- 1 part dark rum
- 1 part orange juice
- 1 part pineapple juice
- A splash of grenadine
- A larger splash of lime juice
- Club soda (optional)
- Seasonal fruit for garnish
