The Turbinado is a combination of rum, lime juice, and ginger beer. The recipe calls for demerara syrup, which is simple syrup made with sugar in the raw. I didn't have any raw sugar, so I substituted brown sugar simple syrup, which imparts a slight molasses flavor to the drink. If you're a fan of rum, I would give this refreshing, well-balanced concoction a try. It's wonderful! Here's the recipe.
2 ounces rum (preferably Brugal Añejo)
1 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
.75 ounce demerara syrup (simple syrup made with sugar in the raw)
1.5 ounces ginger beer
Dash of Angostura bitters
- In a cocktail shaker, combine the rum with the lime juice and simple syrup. Add ice and shake to combine the ingredients.
- Strain into a highball glass filled with crushed ice. Top with the ginger beer and bitters. Enjoy immediately.
