Taste The Rainbow Cocktail Pride Month

This cocktail is a lovely, tasty and boozy way to celebrate Pride month.  

This cocktail was really popular at Wolverhampton Pride.  Lots of you have asked us to share the recipe…..so here it is.  

Taste the rainbow 

The trick to getting the colours to stay separate is a little bit of technique and patience. 

You’ll need

  • Tumbler 
  • Ice
  • Metal spoon
  • Small jug 

INGREDIENTS

  • 25ml White Rum (we used Morvenna)
  • 25ml Blue Curacao (we used De Kuyper)  
  • 100ml Pineapple juice
  • 25ml Grenadine (we used Monin)

STEP 1

Measure 25ml of Grenadine and pour it into your empty tumbler taking care not to get any Grenadine on the sides of the glass . 

STEP 2

Add ice to the tumbler. Ideally these should be ice cubes and should “stack” so that when the other ingredients are added it is more difficult for them to mix together. 

STEP 3

Gently pour 100ml pineapple juice over the ice in the tumbler. 

STEP 4

Mix 25ml of white rum and 25ml of Blue Curacao in a small jug. 

STEP 5

Very slowly pour the rum and curacao mix  into the tumbler over the back of the metal spoon.  The edge of the spoon should touch the side of the glass and you should angle the spoon so that the mix can be poured over the back of the bowl of the spoon and into the glass. 

STEP 6

Decorate!  They don’t add to the flavour but they do add to the fun – who doesn’t love a paper parasol in a cocktail? 

STEP 7 

Celebrate!

HERE’S OUR STORY

After 4 years of being together we never thought that we would one day be in business together. Who knew where a simple text message could lead….

It all started with a conversation with Nicola at one of The Little Gin and Rum Company’s events in Leeds. Amy sent a message to Ian saying “Do you fancy buying a gin and rum company?” and the wheels were set in motion.

OUR BACKGROUND

IAN:

“As a sales professional travelling the UK and the world, I have made travelling and alcohol my thing.  With over 20 years experience supplying the hospitality industry with software and e-learning, I can’t wait to start sharing Queen Cleo Spirits with the industry I love.  You’ll usually find me with my favourite Queen Cleo Rum with ginger ale.”

AMY:

“Where Ian loves sales, I love marketing and as a digital marketing trainer and professional public speaker, I always have a lot to say.  When Nicola and Emma started virtual events in lockdown, I jumped at the opportunity to talk about gin and rum and nearly 200 events later, I still love it.  Old Tom is my favourite tipple and I’ll even drink it neat with just a cube of ice and a squeeze of lime.”

THE FUTURE

Nicola and Emma have created a gin and rum legacy and we are honoured to take it into the future.   

We can’t wait to share our plans with you and we promise to make Queen Cleo proud. 

You know our favourite Queen Cleo drinks and we’d love to know yours.  Share them with us on Instagram #littleginandrumco.
