The Flavour I Caught : Jamaican Passion
This dates a few years ago. A friend V, husband KG and I went to a lounge bar for a party. We were meeting some more friends there and had reached the venue pretty early. In fact we were the only occupants in the lounge at that hour. We found a place with a nice view and got chatting.
The boys being boys, suddenly felt ‘thirsty’ and couldn’t wait to quench it in this beautiful oasis for parched throats. While they were discussing what should be ordered, the bartender joined us on our table and suggested that we play a game. We agreed readily, after all we were here to enjoy the evening!
He placed a dice in front of us and shared the rules with us, which were pretty simple. Each player rolls a dice in turn. The first person to get a 6, names the drink. The second one to get a 6, drinks it. The third, pays for it! So, when V rolled the dice and got a 6 and it was his turn to order a drink for me, he studied the menu very seriously as he wanted a ‘simple’ drink for me (Men!!!!). His intensive 2 minute research resulted in him ordering a Passion Lemonade for me!
The drinks arrived and we had our first sips, of course after the mandatory drinking toasts! You know, drinking without it is blasphemy! And 2 pairs of curious eyes (and one was concerned too) were focused on me to see my reaction to a new drink.
Since I didn’t know what to expect, I took the first sip gingerly. And it brought a sparkle to the eyes and a smile to the lips! The boys were intrigued by my facial feedback and immediately asked the bartender about the recipe for this cocktail.
We could see the pride in his eyes and he gladly shared it with us.
The recipe for Passion Lemonade :
Add ice to a tall glass. Add Breezer – Jamaican Passion (275 ml). Add lemonade (30 ml). Dress with a lemon wedge.
And since then, I am a fan of Breezer – Jamaican Passion, though have tried all the other flavours too. And our mini Bar at home is testimony to that!
If I were to look at why Jamaican Passion is THE flavour for me, I’d base my reaction on the 4Fs. These 4Fs define and bring to the fore the reasons that makes Jamaican Passion my drink of choice.
