Quench the Thirst with Jamaican Summer Drinks

/ Food & Drink

Watermelon

For those looking for something cooler to quench your thirst on a hot summer afternoon or evening, our Jamaican summer drinks will all add a little fizz & sparkle as well as being so easy to make.  All are good enough to use if you are entertaining at a summer party or barbecue, and we’ve listed our favourite non-alcoholic summer cocktails too for those guests not partaking of a tipple.  We do recommend using Jamaican white rum if you can, as its aromatic qualities add that extra hint of summer.

Watermelon Sangria
MAKE-AHEAD
2 pounds seedless watermelon, peeled & cubed, plus 1/2 pound watermelon cut into balls with a melon baller (if available) and skewered on picks
1 bottle dry white wine
6 cl Genesis (light white rum) – not the overproof version! Use vodka instead if you can’t get the light white rum
4 cl Mille Fleurs Wild Orange Liqueur (o/w Cointreau or Triple sec)
4 cl citrus syrup
Ice
In a blender, puree the watermelon cubes. Pour through a fine strainer into a pitcher. Add the white wine, light white rum, Wild Orange Liqueur and Citrus Syrup. Stir and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Stir again, then pour the sangria into ice-filled white wine glasses and garnish with the skewered watermelon balls.

De Mocking Bird Ting
2 cl Mille Fleurs Wild Orange Liqueur (o/w Cointreau or Triple sec)

Pour all ingredients into a highball glass with ice and fill the glass up with ting and stir.
