After one sip, evey ting gonna be irie.

Famous rum drinks, personal favorites, and new creations–we Castaways don’t discriminate when it comes to a good island cocktail. We even have a few flops, or failed experiments here on RSR. As any good scientist knows, you have to test what works and what doesn’t. (Did I really just compare a scientist and a mixologist? Yes. I. Did.)

Today’s Boat Drink recipe is what I’m classifying as an astounding success. I know taste is subjective, but I think you’ll agree.

The drink is called Irie Nectar and was created by Castaway Mixologist Jeremy McDaniel. He is a big fan of Jamaica and this cocktail recipe pays homage to that love.
