The Autumn Daiquiri is a cinnamon-pineapple sour that we just can’t get enough of as the days starter to get cooler and nightfall comes earlier. It is yet another winner in a long line of top-shelf recipes from Joaquín Simó at Death & Co.
Simó tried a variety of aged rums before landing on Mount Gay Eclipse, finding that it lent a pleasant apple flavor to the mix. You can use whatever you’ve got, but we can attest that the Eclipse is great here, and a solid mixing rum overall; we almost always have a bottle on hand.
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Simó doesn’t garnish his, but a short cinnamon stick wouldn’t be out of place.
