  • Coupe

Lime zest twist


SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.

  • 60 ml Ron Santiago de Cuba Extra Añejo 11 Year Old
  • 20 ml Pure cranberry juice - no added sugar
  • 10 ml Lime juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 20 ml Tonka beans syrup (homemade)*

*Recipe for the tonka bean syrup:

  • 1 litre water
  • 1 kg sugar
  • 2 roughly cut tonka beans

Bring water to boil. Add sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Turn off the heat. Add roughly cut tonka bean to the warm mixture. Let it rest for 4 hours. Strain and chill.


"The fruit and sourness of the fresh cranberry juice gives this Cuban classic a modern twist. The smooth finish of the tonka bean polishes the edges of this drink and turns it into a crowd-pleaser."
