'Steel and Brass' cocktail

'Steel and Brass' cocktail

I was lucky enough to be on holiday in Grenada this week. Not Granada, southern Spain, but Grenada in the Caribbean(!)

Plus, I made up a dish that actually had one of my friends licking the bottom of the saucepan, so thought I'd share that with you too. 

This is my first post which isn't 100% foodie, but I do think it will be enjoyable, so my advice would be make a cup of tea [...]
