COMPETITION Inspired cocktail from top white Jamaican rum

23 March, 2007

To celebrate the launch of its signature cocktail, the St Catherine, Wray & Nephew has teamed up with OLN to offer one reader the chance to win a six-bottle case of its Overproof Rum.

The St Catherine was created by mixologist Deano Moncrieffe in response to the growing popularity of this classic white Jamaican rum. The inspiration for the St Catherine comes straight from the colours of Jamaica's own landscape in St Catherine, according to Moncrieffe.

Wray & Nephew's reputation reaches ­staggering proportions in its native Jamaica where it accounts for 90 per cent of all rum sold on the island.

To create the St Catherine, cut 12 white grapes in half and muddle in a Boston glass with eight mint leaves. Add 2.5cl of Wray & Nephew and 2.5cl of gooseberry & mint cordial. Add crushed ice, lightly shake all ingredients and pour into rocks glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a grape.

For the chance to get your hands on the prize just answer this simple question:

What was Deano Moncrieffe's inspiration for the St Catherine cocktail?

Send your answer, with your name, address and telephone number, by April 6, to:

OLN/W&N competition, 52-54 Southwark Street, London, SE1 1UN.
