Juice of 1 lime

Shake ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass rimmed with Caribbean sugar.

Caribbean Sugar

1 part freshly ground cinnamon
1 part freshly ground nutmeg
1 part allspice

Stir ingredients until evenly combined.

Variation: Use sugar as rim garnish on other tropical cocktails, like Mojitos or caprahinas.
