Ah! The mysterious and delicious elixir known as falernum! This Caribbean concoction is a blend of lime, sugar, and spices, and has been a staple in island cocktails for centuries.

 

First made in Barbados, falernum is said to have been created by sailors who were seeking a way to combat scurvy on long voyages. The lime provided a source of Vitamin C, while the sugar and spices helped to mask the strong taste of the rum that they were mixing it with.

And while the exact recipe for falernum can vary from island to island and even from bartender to bartender, it generally includes ingredients like ginger, cloves, almond, and rum. There's no one definitive recipe, that's the beauty of it.

This nectar of the gods adds a perfect kick of tropical flavor to any cocktail. With its bold and spicy taste, falernum is the perfect complement to rum-based drinks like the mai tai or zombie. But it's not just limited to tiki drinks - it can also add a unique twist to classic cocktails like the daiquiri or margarita.
