Winter Daiquiri

Friday, December 14, 2018

My father and I were having a conversation the other week about our favorite cocktails, and I declared my love for nearly any sour made with lime, be it a margarita, a gimlet, or a daiquiri. The only problem with these kinds of cocktails is that it can be a bit difficult to justify drinking them in the dead of winter—which is why I was so delighted to find a wintry spin on my favorite tipple!

Winter Daiquiri 

2 oz aged rum
3/4 oz spiced syrup
3/4 oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for 10–15 seconds, then strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a star anise.

Notes: A healthy pour of funky, aged rum and some spiced syrup are all that's needed to take this cocktail into the new year. To make the syrup, combine 1 cup of sugar with 1 cup of water in a small sauce pan. Add 1 cinnamon stick, 4 allspice pods, 2 cloves, and 1 star anise. Heat until the sugar has dissolved, then let it stand for 30 minutes. Strain and store in the fridge. Cheers!
