Day 24: Don’s Special Daiquiri

  • 1 oz dark rum
  • 1/2 oz light rum
  • 1/2 oz Passion Fruit syrup
  • 1/2 oz honey syrup
  • 1/2 oz lime juice

I showed a colleague of mine the blog because I knew he was also a cocktail fan. The next day he lent me his tiki book. I spent most of Friday making as many cocktails as I could based on what I had in the house, just to practice a bit. The book is absolutely fantastic! I am definitely picking up a copy of my own at some point.

I got some Passion Fruit syrup when I made a liquor store run today since I noticed that so many recipes used it. The recipe calls for “gold Jamaican rum” and “light Puerto Rican rum”, so I used what I found to be close enough. (The book actually has a really good section on types of rums that I will use when I make up my next shopping list). This was pretty sweet, and easy to drink. I might try a more boozy variation at some point.

  1. Beach Bum Barry’s is *the* tiki book, by all accounts. My copy is just… soaked in juices and sugars and rums. That said: a source of passion fruit in any form is like solid damn gold in my experience. I don’t even understand why I have such trouble finding it. So jealous. 😉
