The Story Behind The Dashing Daiquiri
The Daiquiri is my go-to cocktail order, but I never have the same Daiquiri twice. Wherever I am in the world, I’ll ask my bartender to fix me a version that incorporates the local culture — whether it’s a spirit, liqueur, or ingredient that the destination is known for, I love getting to taste it in a Daiquiri. Usually, 99 percent of the time, it turns out delicious.
I came up with this Daiquiri variation after spending time in the Caribbean. I wanted to play around with a “sour” Daiquiri by incorporating grapefruit juice. The egg white gives it a great mouthfeel and rounder flavor profile, bringing the rum, citrus, and sugar together.
