This Caribbean-style cocktail is herby and citrusy with a nice ginger bite — perfect for serving to guests at any gathering.



    4 cups water

    1 (2-inch) nub fresh ginger, peeled and sliced

    2 tablespoons Frontier Co-op powdered sheep sorrel

    1/4 teaspoon ground Frontier Co-op ground cloves

    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon



    3 ounces sorrel base

    1/2 fluid ounce fresh lime juice

    1 fluid ounce simple syrup

    1/2 fluid ounce rum


    1) Bring the ingredients for the sorrel base to a full boil. Remove from heat and cover. Allow mixture to sit for 2 hours.

    2) Using a coffee pour-over, strain the sorrel mixture through a coffee filter into a large jar. Refrigerate until chilled.

    3) Fill a shaker with ice and add ingredients for one cocktail. Shake well and pour into a glass and serve (Note you can adjust the amount of simple syrup, rum, and lime juice to taste).


    Make this cocktail without refined sugar by using a liquid natural sweetener such as pure maple syrup or coconut palm nectar.

    The sorrel base can be made ahead of time and kept it in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.
