Daisy de Santiago | Cocktail Party

Daisy de Santiago

Daisy de Santiago sour cocktail with white rum, yellow chartreuse, lime juice, demerara syrup, and club soda

The Daisy de Santiago is a lovely twist on a Daiquiri, a tart little gem with a wonderful herbal bouquet accented by the effervescence of a splash of sparkling water. That splash isn’t part of the original recipe (attributed to Facundo Bacardi, founder of the eponymous distillery). Rather, it’s a clever addition found in the pages of the Smuggler’s Cove book, along with an improved ratio that thoroughly modernizes a recipe that dates back to at least the late 1800s.

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling water) with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass and top with the sparkling water. Garnish with a slapped sprig of fresh mint.
