The deed is done. Now we have to wait 48 hours. It sure smells good. I only went with 1 scotchman for this first attempt. When it is done I will try various bottlings of Appleton and then take it down to my Jamaican barmen friends.
Here is to Jamaican Independence on August 6th, the same age as me!! .

Got to try the concoction last night. First tried it with Appleton V/X, pretty good. Then tried it with Appleton Extra, very good. Am going to try it with either Appleton Gold, Reserve and maybe MBL tonite. The kids want to try some, so might try a virgin one in some ginger beer for them.

This drink sounds so strange that I am going to have to try it. Off to gather the ingredients...

How was the heat with one scotch bonnet, Bob? I'm going to have to rustle some of this up myself to try it out....

Not very hot and I chopped it up. I think I will add another one. The kids complained it was burning their throat, but I think that was the Jamaican ginger beer!! I tried it with Appleton Reserve last night, but still prefer the Extra as it has a stronger presence. I think Appleton Special Gold would be a good mixer too.
Paul, thanks for the recipe, I'm not a cocktail guy really, anthing more than ice, mixer, and a squeeze of lime is considered cooking in my book
But this was good!!

Try it out for yourselves

Leave the following ingredients in half a litre of water to infuse for a few days, stirring occasionally.
400g soft brown sugar
400g honey
1-2 Scotch Bonnet chillies
1 Bunch Thyme/lemon Thyme
20 Pimento Berries, smashed up
4 inches ginger, peeled and sliced

Once you have your chilli sweetener mix it into your favourite Daiquiri. OUr ideal recipe would be;

50ml Rum - preferably Appleton VX or 8
20ml lime juice
10ml jerk sugar sauce

Shaken and strained into cocktail glass.

It's an amazing experience that opens up and lingers with you for a long time. Heaven!

Irie!
i can't help wondering what hemingway would make of all this?

He probably would have made a pitcherful in my opinion.

My eldest daughter is hooked, she just substituted the rum with Gatorade and loved it!! I just put another scotch bonnet in to make it a little hotter. I think I might try it with the "award winning" Bambarra next.

And glad you're enjoying it Helena. Joe Stokoe is a clever chap...
