Today is the legendary Bob Marley’s birthday – so relax, crank up the reggae tunes and get in the right state of mind with a few Jamaica-inspired drinks.
Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love)
There is one question I’d really like to ask (One Heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Bob Marley & The Wailers – 1965
One Love is an easy-going reggae anthem that Bob Marley originally recorded in 1965 on the album The Wailing Wailers. In 1977, a reworked version of the song appeared on the popular album Exodus and became a huge international hit.
The One Love Cocktail was created by Adam Kanter, owner of Rum Bar. This drink is as simple and satisfying as the song with just three ingredients. Good rum, ginger ale and lime – an old caribbean classic. Enjoy!
ONE LOVE COCKTAIL
1.5 oz Appleton Reserve
4 oz Ginger Ale
Squeeze of Lime
Instructions – Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled Old Fashioned glass and stir. Add a squeeze of lime. Now relax and enjoy (preferably at a beach or other breezy location with a view of boats and palm trees).
Happy Bob Marley Day everybody!!
