crimson daiquiri

1 1/2 oz Santa Teresa Claro Rum
3/4 oz Crème Yvette
3/4 oz Cocchi Americano
1/4+ oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass.
Two Fridays ago after work, I ventured over to the Sinclair for drinks with Drambuie Tara. For a first libation, I asked bartender Bryn Tattan for the Crimson Daiquiri, their Daiquiri Time Out tribute to their Harvard neighborhood. The inclusion of Crème Yvette made me think of some of the drinks that Scott Holliday of Rendezvous has created and I was eager to see how the bartenders at the Sinclair were using this liqueur. Once mixed, the Crimson Daiquiri began with a floral and berry aroma from the Yvettte. A citrus, berry, and white wine sip led into the rum on the swallow and a bitter floral finish
