A martini, reimagined by Malibu.
The martini cocktail has been through a myriad of versions. What remains is sometimes just the idea of a drink served in a stemmed cocktail glass. The Caribbean Spice cocktail is also served martini style. It may share little resemblance with the stripped down martini original (which in itself remains a field of great debate). Like the name of this beautiful cocktail implies, it is really all about the combination of spices familiar from Caribbean cooking. The muddled spices brings out a scent of an after dinner sunset cocktail.
1 part Malibu®
2 inch piece of lemongrass
1 teaspoon Lime Juice
1 thin Sliver of Chili Pepper
2 stems Coriander (Cilantro)
1 teaspoon sugar
HOW TO MIX THE DRINK:
Thoroughly muddle a 2 inch piece of lemongrass and 2 stems of Coriander with 1 teaspoon of sugar in the shaker glass. Add 1 thin sliver of chili pepper, 1 part Malibu® and 1 teaspoon lime juice, shake hard and fine strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lemon grass stem.
