Briland on My Mind Signature Cocktail Recipe
Originally only available in Harbour Island, or Briland as it’s referred to by its inhabitants and visitors, and known as the island’s best kept secret, AFROHEAD Rum is a tribute to its origins of genuine inspiration.
This cocktail was developed by AFROHEAD Rum Ambassador, Isaac Grillo. Growing up in Colorado, Grillo and his family shared a love for food and traveling, which sparked his interest in the hospitality industry.
After high school graduation, he moved to Hawaii to attend Chaminade University, where he kept himself busy by working casual serving and bartending jobs. Hungry for more, Grillo furthered his education by taking culinary courses at The Art Institute of Colorado.
Following his coursework, the budding mixologist put his knowledge to the test by experimenting with food and molecular mixology behind the bar at a number of high-profile restaurants and hotels around the country.
Today, Grillo is a celebrated professional in the spirits industry who has earned the respect of his peers. His passion for craft spirits and enthusiasm for locally sourced ingredients are the source of his creative approach to mixology. Here we present his cocktail:
2.0 oz AfroheadBriland 07
1.0 oz lime juice
0.5 oz Giffard apricot liqueur
0.5 oz ginger syrup
Shake and strain all ingredients into chilled coupe glass. Garnish with fresh grated ginger.
