Golden Daiquiri

A golden twist on a classic


Thought to be the favourite tipple of President John Kennedy, the world-renowned Daiquiri is widely attributed to Jennings Cox, an American Engineer working in Cuba in the late 1800s. Cox is said to have run out of gin while entertaining guests one evening. Quick-witted Cox grabbed what was readily available as a substitute – rum (and a little lime and sugar). Cox proclaimed this new drink the Daiquiri in honour of the local beach town where he worked. The Daiquiri remained little-known outside of Cuba for many years. That is until a US naval officer encountered Cox and his Daiquiri and brought the recipe back to the Army and Navy Club in Washington. What better way to spread the word? Fast forward to today, and there are various versions of the Daiquiri to enjoy around the world.

How to make it

1. Add all ingredients into your shaking tin and add ice
2. Shake for 10-12 seconds
3. Double strain into the glass
4. Garnish with a lime wheel on the rim of the glass

On the nose it's all lime! Bright, tart and citrusy. On tasting, it's a perfect blend of sweet and sour as that syrup and lime mix. It's all cut through by the boozy, woody and caramel notes from the rum. You get a little fruit, a little funk, it's tropical perfection.
