Jamaica gained independence from the United Kingdom on 6 August 1962. In Jamaica, this date is celebrated as Independence Day and is a national holiday.
We celebrate by giving you our cocktail Brown Girl in the Ring. A celebration of Jamaica with Blue Mountain Coffee and Root2Ginger. Blue Mountain Coffee is regarded as one of the best coffees in the world and is grown at elevations over 7000 feet above sea level. The coffee has a beautiful taste, a mild sweetness and is known for its lack of bitterness.
Obviously, this cocktail honours Jamaican Disco Band Money M and their hit song Brown Girl in the Ring which derives from a Caribbean children’s song. Brown girl in the ring Tra lah lah lah lah…….!
