International Women’s Day 2023

I’m working late again. No surprises there. As a woman in business I often find myself pushing well past my comfort zone and known (healthy) capacity in order to achieve the goals I’ve set for myself and my businesses. We women rarely prioritise ourselves. That’s actually what I’m trying to do now as I type this at the end of another eventful International Women’s Day. This year I marked the occasion by participating in a radio talk show hosted by a friend/mentor of mine Charlene Pedro on THE L.A.B. Radio, the topic we discovered mirrored International Women’s Day’s theme of Embracing Equity. One of the issues we discussed was claiming your power.

I’ve been thinking about this all day. I’ve been asking myself, “How do we as female business owners/leaders claim our power in a world that doesn’t always welcome or facilitate our presence?” Especially when you’re operating in a sector that is male dominated, like mine.

My answer is simple, keep doing what you’re doing anyway, don’t wait to be invited to the table, don’t wait for permission. The women in whose honour we celebrate IWD didn’t stop what they were doing and they certainly didn’t get permission, equity was not something they were offered. They grabbed it forcibly, and forcefully took what equality and freedom they wanted, when they had to, in order to see progress and a measurable shift towards equality of treatment. I think this generation of women, female business owners in particular, can do no less.

So in order to honour them I’ve decided to identify one area of my life that I can live more authentically, where I can push for more equity and equality (they aren’t the same) so that not only my life, but that of the woman next to me becomes a bit more bearable, joyful and successful.

I’ll leave you with this African proverb, “If we stand tall it is because we stand on the shoulders of many ancestors.”

Let us honour those who went before us by doing our best to stand tall.

Happy International Women’s day, today and everyday.


There’s a lot to do…

Hi Indelimers! I promised that I’d start back writing the Tipsy blogs so this is me keeping my promise.

Over the past few months IndelimeTT has resumed production and you’ve been seeing us out and about in various artisanal markets around the country and on social media. One question that you all have been asking is where you can purchase our drinks other than the artisanal markets. I’m letting you know that we’re working on it so stay tuned.

We’ve really appreciated your support over the past couple of years and we’re looking forward to your continued support in the years to come. There’s still a lot we need to do but rest assured we’re really working hard on it and we’ll be around for some time to come.

Have a great week and remember to drink something nice this week!


It took us a minute, but we’re back

This pandemic hit everyone hard, including us. It forced us to close shop, stop selling and get very still. We took this time to step back, recalibrate, re-strategise our business model and plans.

We were waiting on the right time to get back out there, but honestly the right time never comes, so here we are 🙂

During the next few months you’ll be seeing changes to our site, our bottles and our flavours, but we think you’re going to love the new and improved IndelimeTT. We’re making these adjustments to improve our products and service and ultimately level up the customer’s overall experience.

Thanks for staying the course with us and we look forward to serving you in the coming months….. Cheers!

What to drink this Holiday season (during a pandemic)

I think we all could agree that this year has been tough. We thought 2020 was bad but 2021 came around and showed us who was boss. After celebrating Christmas during a pandemic last year I think we should all know the ropes by now, in terms of what to do and what not to do, what to expect and what not to expect. I’ve been trying my best to remain positive and to focus on the lighter side of things and to talk and think more about the things I enjoy. One of those things is, of course, liqueur. No surprises there.

I’ve been thinking about which drinks I’ll be making this Christmas season, after all it’s the second Christmas we’re celebrating during this pandemic. I’ve come up with my top 5 favourite holiday drinks for 2021:

  1. Sorrel…. anything sorrel flavoured, Sorrel liqueur is at the top of my list, as well as sorrel rum punch and sorrel wine.
  2. Chocolate… another popular choice. I’ve been seeing Chocolate-flavoured ponche de creme, I don’t think anything could go wrong with this choice. I’ve been making Chocolate flavoured liqueur for quite sometime and it’s always a crowd favourite.
  3. Christmas punch, basically sorrel (again, yes) mixed with fruit juices and a dash or two of your favourite alcoholic beverage. The recipe for this IndelimeTT Christmas punch is on our recipe page.
  4. Buttered rum ice cream shake, I came up with this one after hearing someone mention it on a TV show I was watching. It’s basically, blended coconut ice cream, cinnamon, nutmeg, amaretto mio liqueur and butterscotch liqueur with a dash of rum (red rum preferably), add crushed ice and enjoy. The recipe for this IndelimeTT buttered-rum ice cream shake is on our recipe page.
  5. Trini-Irish cream, my own take on Irish cream. It’s made up of coconut cream (can you tell that I have a bias?), coconut condensed milk, cocoa powder, vanilla essence, coffee liqueur and whisky. See the recipe page for this recipe too.

I hope you give some of these drinks a try. I think you’re going to love them.

I wish each of you the very best for this season and 2022. May we all be blessed!
