Originating from the Queen's Park Hotel in Trinidad, this drink encapsulates the essence of the islands with its vibrant blend of fresh lime juice, fragrant mint leaves, and smooth white rum, all accentuated with a dash of bitters which together create a complex and harmonious flavor profile. Served in a highball glass and often associated with the swizzle stick—an essential bar tool in the art of mixing tropical drinks—it's an aromatic beverage that's as visually appealing as it is delightful on the palate, garnished with a sprig of mint and a wedge of lime to enhance its aesthetic appeal.
