Happy Saturday, friends! I don't know about you, but after a very busy week, I'm more than ready for a little down time and a couple of cocktails.

For your drinking pleasure this weekend, I bring you this beautiful twist on a Daiquiri by @theweekendmixologist. He describes it as "tropical, refreshing, sweet, sour, and with a bit of funk," and since I'm all about island living at the moment, this is sounding right up my alley. Particularly because of the addition of Amontillado Sherry to balance the sweetness and complement the funkiness of the Jamaican Rum. Amontillado is a Sherry style that brings a bit of richness and nutiness to cocktails, and I dig it for the savory layer it adds to a drink.

So Cin Cin to the weekend and to a great new week ahead!



2 oz Aged Jamaican Rum

1/4 oz Amontillado Sherry

3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice

1/2 oz Raspberry Syrup

Pinch of Salt

Garnish: Lime wheel


Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail tin and then add ice. Shake well and double strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
