Rum • Sour
Holiday Daiquiri

The perfect pairing for rich and heavy holiday foods, this variation on the classic Daiquiri is tart and bright with an undercurrent of winter spice. Made with pimento dram (a Caribbean liqueur infused with allspice berries), both spiced and white rums, and a robust demerara syrup, it’s dangerously chuggable. This palate cleansing cocktail should be made by the pitcherful if you’re expecting a crowd (or even if it’s just two of you).
