The Pilgrim is a sweet and spicy rum-based cocktail that uses a fairly unusual ingredient, pimento liqueur. This is a traditional Jamaican liqueur that resembles the powdered allspice, that is widely used in cakes and desserts. Often drunk as an aperitif, the Pilgrim is an interesting drink that really isn’t like anything else.
A Perfect Martini is a classic, elegant cocktail that mixes gin with dry vermouth. Simple yet sophisticated, stirred together with ice and then strained into a chilled glass.
Place the sugar cube in the bottom of a chilled champagne flute and add the bitters. Pour in the brandy and top up very slowly with champagne. Garnish with a cherry and a wedge of lemon.
