This year, the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, in collaboration with the Antigua and Barbuda Festivals Commission and Premier Beverages, is inviting Antiguans and Barbudans and the nation’s well-wishers to celebrate the country’s 39th Year of Independence on November 1, with the ‘After 5’ daiquiri. 

The official “Independence cocktail” was launched on October 29 and features a myriad of Antigua and Barbuda-based flavours. 

Crafted as a modern variation of the Old-Fashioned Rum Punch with an Antiguan twist, the cocktail uses English Harbour 5-Year-Old Rum as its base, and includes fresh lime juice, orange bitters and nutmeg. The use of agave nectar, taken from the flower of the Dagger Log, Antigua and Barbuda’s national flower, adds a wonderful sweetness to the cocktail.  

The Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority’s Social Media team hosted a Facebook LIVE demonstration of the ‘After 5’ cocktail featuring Calbert Francis, Global Export Manager at Premier Beverages.  

Jacqueline Thomas, owner, and chef at the Villas at Sunset Lane created saltfish cakes with an Antiguan black pineapple dip as the perfect appetizer to pair with the cocktail.
