Swank ©Cynthia Nelson
Whether on a hot day or enjoying the coolness of an afternoon breeze, a glass of ice cold Swank (limeade) is refreshing and hits the spot. The drink is simply a mixture of fresh squeezed lime juice and Demerara sugar (or any West Indian brown sugar) sweetened to suit your taste. The addition of a few drops of mixed essence and/or couple dashes of Angostura Bitters elevates the flavour. If you are into black salt, a pinch added to the Swank makes the drink interesting, but I have to admit, the addition of sulphuric (Indian) black salt is not for everyone.
