In celebration of Jamaican Independence Day, Cottons Rhum Shack in Camden will be celebrating in style this evening (August 6th). Using their recently renovated original restaurant in Camden, opened back in 1985, the event will feature a Reggae Festival with live music and a BBQ that will serve Jerk Chicken. What’s more, if you take a Pineapple along to the event with you, it can be exchanged for a free Pina Colada Cocktail. If you’re not in the City, however, the restaurant has shared the recipe for their famous Pina Colada for our readers to try at home.
25 ml Havana 3yr Rum (White)
25 ml Captain Morgan’s Rum (Dark)
2 parts Coco Lopez coconut cream
1 part double cream with a touch of nutmeg
1 part pineapple juice
1 slice of Pineapple
1. Blend all of the above with two scoops of crushed Ice.
2. Serve in a Hurricane glass.
Cottons can be found at 55 Chalk Farm Road, London, NW1 8AN.
