winter daiquiri

1 1/2 oz Aged Rum (Turkey Shore Tavern Style)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Vanilla Syrup (B.G. Reynold's)
1/4 oz Allspice Dram (St. Elizabeth)
1 dash Angostura Bitters

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wheel studded with 3 cloves.

Two Wednesdays ago, we decided to make one of the drinks from Imbibe Magazine's vanilla article, namely Mindy Kucan's Winter Daiquiri. We not only had a chance to meet Mindy at Portland Cocktail Week in October, but we had the great opportunity to have her make us drinks at Hale Pele, the Tiki bar in Portland she works at, later that week. While it was not on the menu at that time, her Winter Daiquiri could easily mingle with all of the classics on the Hale Pele's menu.

The aged Turkey Shore rum offered butterscotch and some funkier rum notes along with the other ingredients' clove and vanilla aromas. A caramel, butterscotch, and lime sip proceeded well into the rum and vanilla swallow that gradually gained more and more allspice flavors.
