April 2022 - What's in the Box?

This 100 year old cocktail comes all the way from the city of love! Originally created in the 1920s by Harry MacElhone, the Between The Sheets is a sophisticated cocktail with a little twist.

A sophisticated blend of a Trinidadian Rum, French Orange Liqueur, Fresh Lemon and our own addition, a French Cherry Brandy. All combined to make a lovely, sweet and fresh drink, perfect for any occasion.

25ml White Rum
25ml Cherry Brandy
25ml Cointreau

  2. Pour in the White Rum, Cherry Brandy and Cointreau. Cut your lemon in half, slice off a wheel, and cut in 2 halves (to garnish). Squeeze one half of the lemon into your shaker. (Watch out for seeds!)Cut the lime in half, slice off a wheel, and cut into two slices (optional, to garnish).
