With Halloween coming up, I thought I’d post a recipe for a “jumbie” drink. “Jumbie” is a Caribbean term for a ghost that is trapped in a state of limbo or purgatory.
2 oz. spiced rum
1⁄2 oz. maple syrup
1⁄4 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice (about half a lime)
1⁄4 oz. apple cider
1⁄8 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 stick cinnamon, for garnish
In a shaker, add all the ingredients, except for cinnamon stick, along with 1⁄2 cup of ice. Shake vigorously to dissolve ground cinnamon. Pour the mixture along with ice into an old-fashioned glass to serve. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.
