In the depths of winter when we were all daydreaming about warm sunshine we decided to make a Canchánchara. If you’ve ever visited Cuba the bartender might have recommended you try a Canchánchara. The Canchánchara is said to be the oldest cocktail in Cuba heralding from the town of Trinidad. This delightful drink is made with Rum, lime juice and local honey.
- 1 1/2 ounces Ironworks Amber Rum
- 1 lime, freshly squeezed
- 1/2 ounce honey syrup (made with your favourite local honey)
- 1 splash club soda
- Garnish with a lime wedge
Honey Syrup (make ahead of time)
- Blend ½ cup honey with ½ cup water in a small saucepan. Heat over a low temperature and whisk until the honey has dissolved. Set aside to cool.
You'll need a shaker for this one!
- Add Ironworks Amber Rum, the juice of one lime and honey syrup into a shaker with ice, and shake until well-chilled.
- Strain into a glass filled with fresh ice.
- Top with a splash of club soda.
- Garnish with a lime wedge.
