Scorpion Kick

Scorpion Kick cocktail with white rum, crème de cacao, lime juice, simple syrup, and fresh mint

The Scorpion Kick is a brilliant Daiquiri riff from Dan Greenbaum at Diamond Reef, a bar & grill in New York City. Its rum-citrus-chocolate combo shows up in a few similar drinks, and we never get tired of it.

Here, it’s bolstered by a big fistful of mint leaves, giving it a quality not unlike one of those melt-in-your-mouth after-dinner mints.

Greenbaum recommends Plantation 3 Star, one of our go-to white rums (along with El Dorado 3-Year).

Finally great cocktail app

I was so tired in these obnoxious subscription based apps. It was really hard to find this one. Works really well and interface is clean and understandable! Thank you!
