Swanky Panky

2 Flares 2 Flares ×

I had my first swanky during Gimistory a few years ago.

Gimistory is a storytelling festival held annually in Cayman. Β A different island district hosts each night and Clark Kent and I try to make it to the West Bay one each year. Β In addition to stories, poetry, ex tempo, calypso and duppy (ghost) tales there’s a food competition to find out which district has the best fried fish & fritter and the best swanky.

You will need:
6 cups of water
1 cup lime juice
2 tsp honey
1 cup brown sugar

  • Combine your ingredients
  • Shake
  • Enjoy!
PS. Β Might I suggest adding rum if you’d like to ‘adult’ this up a bit πŸ™‚

  15. Hola. I wanted to reply to your comment on my blog here to make sure that you would see it:) I am really curious why you can't get eggplant there. Is it the climate or is it just not a popular food item? I love learning about the food traditions of other places.
