The special guest at Richards’ and Kelly’s Spirited Dinner, Rhum Clément’s Créole Shrubb (Lee’s Discount Liquor, $33), blends white and aged rums with macerated Creole spices (cinnamon, clove, vanilla) and sun-bleached bitter orange peels to make a moderately sweet Martinique rum-based orange liqueur. At home with dark spirits or light, Créole Shrubb appeared in Kelly’s Black Shrubb as well as in Richards’ first place-winning Milagro tequila margarita, the Fiesta Fatale.
