Daiquiri, Martini, or Rumtini?

     Martini's or Daiquiri's, I really wonder what the difference is other than Martini's are generally mad with vodka or gin and Daiquiri's are made with rum.  I guess that it is pretty much a moot point, but one that is interesting to ponder.  

     Any who, here is an idea for the late summer or right into fall for a  rumtini or daiquiri if you like with a little different twist.
Bahama Bob’s Apple Rumtini
  • 2 oz. Diplomatico Blanco
  • 1 Lemon Wedge
  • 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon Sugar
  • ¼  Diced Green Apple
  • ½ oz. Agave Nectar
  • ½ oz. Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao
  • ¾ oz. Lemon Juice

Rub a lemon wedge on the  rim of the martini glass then dip in the cinnamon sugar.    Muddle together the diced apple and agave nectar in a cocktail shaker.   Add ice and the remaining ingredients and shake well until the outside of the shaker is frosted.   Strain into the sugared martini glass.
