Shrubb, a Caribbean orange liqueur, is a criminally-underused ingredient – especially when it comes to the tropical cocktails to which it is so well-suited.
Ender the St. Lucian, from Brad Smith at Latitude 29 in New Orleans. It’s a restrained, spirit-forward cocktail with tiki roots. Rhum Clement’s Creole Shrubb sings in this drink, backed by a chorus of woody, spicy notes from the rum and amaro (Averna, preferably).
Stir all ingredients with ice in a mixing glass (Smith recommends a single large cube, and a stir of 47 revolutions, but you do you). Strain into an ice-filled short glass, and garnish with an orange twist.
