Our fun cocktail recommendation this month is a fabulous “Goldeneye.” It is a very simple but delicious drink and not-to-be-missed when you are here with us. Ask any of our bartenders to whip one up for you!
History about the Goldeneye
Many of you will of course relate the name Goldeneye to James Bond. Goldeneye is actually the original name of the former home of Novelist Ian Fleming, who as you know, wrote all the James Bond books. Two movies, namely Dr. No and Live and Let Die, were filmed near to his estate.
Ian Fleming used to come here to hang out with Noel Coward and Winston Churchill and have drinks. It was written in Goldeneye that the concept of the Vesper Martini (shaken, not stirred) was created here at Jamaica Inn and it was Winston Churchill that taught Ian Fleming about it right here at our bar!
So in an ode to history created and the book, we salute Goldeneye with the drink that was created using Blackwell rum!
- Start with a lowball glass and ice
- Pour one ounce of Blackwell Rum over the ice
- Add in four ounces of Pineapple juice
- A squeeze of lime
- Top the drink with another ounce of Blackwell Rum
- Use an orange wedge for a garnish
