Origins of the Cocktail

It’s origins however are not so well known, but as we heard it dates back to the early 1950s. The most popular bartender that was associated with this cocktail is Oswald “ Slade “ Greenslade who is a Bahamian guy that worked at the Nassau Beach Hotel on Cable Beach from 1961 to 1993 where he mentioned that he invented this concoction which apparently was named after a local singer that he knew. But the one he’s known for is the coffee-induced version, however the one we are doing is the fruity rum version.

Shaking Tip : Don’t shake in an up and down or vertical fashion. Instead hold the shaker in a parallel position to the floor and while grasping it securely move it forward so that you can feel and hear the contents inside it leaving the side that’s closest to your body and hit the opposite side and as soon as they do snap your wrists back toward your body to get them back towards you.
