The Story Behind The Daiquiri Especiale

The Daiquiri Especial employs a blend of three rums: rhum agricole, Jamaican rum, and blended white rum. Together, these rums offer a strong hogo funk, grassiness, and a slight touch of sweetness. Hosaka uses a honey syrup instead of simple syrup and just a bit of oloroso sherry to give the cocktail a slight nutty flavor.
