It’s #NationalDaquiriDay apparently, and that’s good enough for me! I’m killing two birds with one stone with this drink recipe, the second drink in the Aviary Cocktail book and getting to use my new Perlini cocktail Carbonation system!
Normally, I wouldn't make any variations to a recipe from the Aviary book, but this is a basic Daquiri recipe so I felt okay putting my own spin on it. The first change that I made to this recipe was to substitute the white rum with some Rhum Agricole, because I didn't have any white rum… and I like the added funk and color it lends this familiar cocktail. The second change was to the texture of the drink by carbonating it in my new Perlini cocktail shaker. I love bubbles and I love that I can now add them to any cocktail I want (mostly).
The Same But Different Daquiri
2 oz. Rhum Agricole (Clément V.S.O.P. Rhum Agricole Vieux)
3/4 oz. lime juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup
Brûlée lime slice for garnish
Add ingredients to Perlini shaker with ice. Carbonate cocktail according to Perlini instructions, shake with ice and pour into glass after waiting 15-30 seconds for pressure to subside. Garnish with a lime slice that has been sprinkled with sugar and placed under a broiler (or use a kitchen torch) until golden brown.
It’s the freakin’ weekend,
