#RumForTheHills: Don’s Special Daiquiri

Don's-Special-Daiquiri-1

A few of us on Instagram have started a #RumForTheHills hashtag and so I thought I’d start with a really fabulous Daiquiri recipe from the 1970s. I got this recipe from the Beachbum Berry Total Tiki app and it’s a knock out! If you don’t have this app (or one of his books) you need to get on it!

This Daiquiri is a version of Don the Beachcomber’s 1934 Mona Daiquiri. Now, of course I made a couple of modifications, namely, 1/4 oz more lime juice and 1/4 oz more Rum cause I like my Daiquiris tart and boozy.

  1. What a lovely post!
    I had this cocktail made for me during my recent trip to London. the bartender who suggested it changed the honey syrup for agave syrup and added a star anise piece instead of the cherry. It was divine.
