The "Freed Up" Daiquiri

     It has been a while since I've been able to spend some time in my "Rum Lab", but with the cool weather this past week I was able to do a bit of experimenting with my favorite cocktail category, the daiquiri.   Below is an interesting combination that I found to be very flavorful and fits well with a cool evening stuck inside.

Bahama Bob’s Freed Up Daiquiri

·         2 1/2 oz. Flor de Caya 12 Year Old Rum
·         1/2 oz. Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
·         2 dashes of Fee Bros. Orange Bitters
·         1 dash Fee Bros. Old Fashion Bitters
·         Juice of ½ Lime
·         ¼ oz. Agave Nectar

Place all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled.  Strain into a chilled Martini Glass and garnish with a long orange zest.
Give this one a try, I believe you will be freed up from the doldrums of winter long enough to picture a warm Caribbean sunset.   ;o)
