Aft Deck Cocktail Time

     Summer is here and it is time for some really refreshing aft deck daiquiri's   I had the urge for some watermelon yesterday and it gave me an idea for a new daiquiri.   In the true style of the El Floridita, it is a frozen daiquiri, still Havana day dreaming, no better place for great daiquiri cocktails.  Anyway back here in America, here is an idea that I thing you might really enjoy.

Bahama Bob's Watermelon Daiquiri

  • 3 oz.  Matusalem Platino
  • 2 Pieces of Fresh Watermelon (Seeds out)
  • ½ oz.  Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao or Triple Sec
  • Juice of 1/2 Lime
  • 1 splash 7-Up or Sprite
  • 1 Watermelon Slice Garnish

Place Rum, Watermelon, Curacao, and Lime Juice  in blender with about a cup of ice.  Blend until smooth and pout into a Martini Glass and add a splash of 7 up or Sprite and garnish with a wedge of watermelon.
     I'm up here in North Carolina and nothing would suit me better than a really good daiquiri.  We are in watermelon country up so here we go, hopefully there are a lot of you that like watermelon and daiquiri.
