The daiquiri is easily one of the most beloved and quintessential drinks in cocktail history. From the original Cuban recipe to the neon-hued frozen concoctions slurped up by Bourbon Street revelers, the daiquiri has been a fixture for over a century, and has bred countless variations along the way. The recipe’s simplicity — rum, lime, syrup — belies the complex nature of the drink: it’s incredibly easy to mess up. When done right, though, it’s one of the most balanced (not to mention refreshing) drinks in the cocktail canon.
Frose may be the unofficial drink of the summer, but it pales (literally and figuratively) in comparison to this combo from Compere Lapin. Red wine, rum and Montenegro provide the backbone for this recipe, rounded out with orange juice, allspice liqueur, strawberry puree and rose cordial.
