Garnet Girls

The Garnet Girls cocktail is a rum based drink that has been in existence for over 160 years. It is often served at celebrations and has a rich history in the Caribbean. The drink was originally created by British Merchant Navy sailors in the 1800s. They would mix dark rum, lime juice, sugar, and water with bitters to create this sweet but potent drink. It is an easy to make drink that's perfect for anytime of the year. It has a sweet, fruity flavor with rich aromas of juniper and coriander. This drink is very potent so it only calls for half oz of vodka!
