Flor de Cana Foot Loose Daiquiri

     August is still hot outside and refreshing cocktails are the order of the day.   I find a daiquiri is still one of the most refreshing ones that there is out there.  I keep trying new ideas for this simple age old cocktail and find wonderful things are always following.   I was fooling around in the rum lab the other day with some 12 year old Flor de Cana rum and came up with this fun daiquiri.

    You might give it a try on one of these hot evenings out on the patio.  I feel like it is perfect for that after work cocktail as you chill from your day.

Bahama Bob’s Foot Loose Daiquiri

·         3 oz. Flor de Cana  7 Year Old Rum
·         1/2 oz. Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
·         Juice of 1/2 Fresh Lime
·         2 dashes of Fee Bros. Orange Bitters
·         1 dash Fee Bros. Old Fashion Bitters
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.   If you have a "sweet tooth" you can add a little sweetener.
     I hope you enjoy this cocktail and it helps get you through the hot summer days.
