TO CELEBRATE earth day, Rum Journal decided to bring you a special “green” cocktail called the Spicy Island Turtle.
The cocktail, which comes from Kendie Williams, the master mixologist at the Four Seasons Resort in Nevis, is made with local, sustainable ingredients and the special Naked Turtle Rum, which aims to promote the conservation of sea turtles.
In fact, Naked Turtle Rum has partnered with the Sea Turtle Conservancy in their efforts to help save the critically endangered sea turtles of the Caribbean along with donating a portion of its profits to help sea turtle conservation.
It’s fairly simple, then — drink this cocktail, help save a sea turtle in the Caribbean.
