don's special daiquiri

1 oz Gold Jamaican Rum (7/8oz Appleton V/X, 1/8oz Smith & Cross)
1/2 oz Puerto Rican Rum (Caliche)
1/2 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
1/2 oz Honey Syrup
1/2 oz Lime Juice

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass.
Three Mondays ago, I turned to Beachbum Berry's Remixed for my nightcap. There, I spotted the Don's Special Daiquiri which was the 1970s version of Don the Beachcomber's 1934 Mona Daiquiri. With a rum blend and both honey and passion fruit syrups as the sweeteners, it definitely intrigued me. Once in a glass, the Daiquiri offered rum, passion fruit, and floral aromas. Next, lime and passion fruit on the sip led into funky rums, tropical flavors, and floral notes on the swallow.
