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.
Don’s Special Daiquiri
- 1 oz Jamaican Rum (Smith & Cross)
- 3/4 oz Aged White Rum (Denizen Aged Rum)
- 3/4 oz Lime Juice
- 1/2 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
- 1/2 oz Honey Syrup
- Garnish: Maraschino Cherry
Combine ingredients over ice and shake. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, garnish with Maraschino Cherry.
Hope you enjoy and if you wanna join in the party, use #RumForTheHills on Instagram!
