A Faux Daiquiri

     I was thinking of something out of the ordinary and refreshing this morning to celebrate our warm day.  I looked up and saw two bottles that were standing out on the shelf of the bar shelf and went to work.  Doorly's XO and St. Germain Elder Flower Liqueur.   This is what I was craving and needed to put it together with some new flavors to create something exciting and fun for the evening.

     Getting tired of lime juice in most daiquiri style cocktails it was time to give a lemon a n opportunity to show its stuff.  

     Lets see what we ended up with that filled the bill so perfectly.

Bahama Bob's Faux Daiquiri

  • 2 oz. Doorly's XO Rum
  • 1/2 oz. St. Germain Elder Flower Liqueur
  • Juice of 1/2 Lemon
  • Top Up with Barritt's Ginger Beer
Place all ingredients except the Ginger Beer in a shaker filled with ice and shake until chilled.   Strain into a Martini glass and top up with Barritt's Ginger Beer.   Garnish with a Lemon Zest and enjoy.

     Give this one a try, I think you might find it very interesting.   ;o)
