Batavia arrack is a sugarcane- and molasses-based spirit that has a rum-like flavor. Look for it online at drinkupny.com and samswine.com. Cachaça (Brazilian sugarcane liquor) makes a good substitute. Manzanilla Sherry is a light, elegant style of Sherry that comes from a seaside town in southern Spain. It is dry and crisp with a hint of saltiness. Manzanilla Sherry is available at liquor stores and online at wine.com. Any fino-style Sherry (such as fino, amontillado, or Palo Cortado) would be a good stand-in. Clément Créole Shrubb is a smooth, not-too-sweet orange liqueur made in Martinique. Buy it at liquor stores or online at thejugshop.com, or use Cointreau or Grand Marnier instead.
