Need a cocktail? You need a Jamrock! This Barbadian rum cocktail from Studio Bar is a must-try summer tipple.

Head Mixologist at Studio Bar, Michal Golecki, shares the recipe for an exclusive ‘Barbados Journey’ cocktail available at K West Hotel & Spa.

‘Jamrock’ is a cocktail as colourful as the Caribbean, named in honour of the legend himself. Bob Marley’s son, Damian Marley, won two Grammy Awards with his album ‘Welcome to Jamrock’ and K West is recreating that Marley magic using Doorly’s XO Rum, a well-aged character, double matured in Spanish oloroso sherry casks.


25 ml Doorly’s XO Rum

12.5ml MB Banana liqueur

12.5ml Malibu

12.5ml Mozart Chocolate liqueur

3 Muddled Maraschino cherries

25ml Passion fruit purée

Passion fruit and seeds

Sprig of fresh mint


Muddle the Maraschino cherries in a cocktail shaker to get the full flavour out.

Pour the rum, MB Banana liqueur, Malibu, MB Chocolate liqueur and passion fruit purée to the shaker, along with some ice.

Shake, shake, shake (for at least 12 seconds).

Pour over crushed ice in your favourite glass, or a copper tin mug if you really want to drink like a local.

Cut the passion fruit in half and use the seeds of one half and a sprig of fresh mint to garnish the drink.

Bottoms up!

Michal’s expert tip: ‘To kick it up a notch, fill up the empty passion fruit half with Sambuca and flame the fruit with a lighter. Pour Sambuca on top of the cocktail as you serve.’

You’ll find the K West Hotel & Spa here:  K West Hotel & Spa, Richmond Way, London W14 0AX. For reservations, please call: 020 8008 6600 or visit k-west.co.uk.
