The Story Behind The Port of Havana

If I’m out drinking but not feeling like my usual adventurous self, I will almost always order a Daiquiri. It’s one of those deliciously refreshing cocktails you can enjoy all year long.

The Port of Havana spins off a classic Daiquiri, incorporating fresh strawberries as well as tart lemon curd for texture and flavor alongside the traditional white rum. It all started when a friend brought me some lemon curd as a present. (I think she intended for me to bake a cake or something; that was never going to happen.) Instead, I took it as a challenge! I wanted to find another use for it and quickly decided that it would be a great Daiquiri addition. I added some chopped strawberries as well, and that fresh, fruity taste plays nicely with the lemon curd.
