COCKTAILS COURTESY OF THE DUPPY SHARE

The Duppy Conqueror 4
It’s London Cocktail Week! I think cocktails are wonderful things to celebrate, and I’m sure most of you will agree.

Introducing The Duppy Share’s signature cocktail – The Duppy Conqueror. This aptly named rum cocktail means business. It’s a modern take on a traditional rum, lime and sugar combo. Think of a Caipirinha (of the not so sweet variety), minus the Cachaça with a bit more kick.

Wanna know how to make it? See below:

    Ingredients (for one serving)

* The Duppy Share – 50ml
* Sugar syrup – 30ml
* Freshly squeezed lime juice – 25ml
* Angostura Bitters – 3 dashes

    Method

Mix The Duppy Share, sugar syrup, lime juice. Then pour the combo over crushed ice. Add 3 dashes of Angostura bitters, and garnish with a lime wedge.

Enjoy!

Love, Ms.Rae xo
