cesaire daiquiri

2 oz Clement Premiere Canne Rhum Agricole
1/2 oz Bacardi 8 Year Rum
3/4 oz Honey Syrup
3/4 oz Lime Juice
2 dash Regan's Orange Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a single Old Fashioned glass, and garnish with a lime twist.
Two Wednesdays ago, I headed over to Russell House Tavern for dinner. For a first drink, I asked bartender Brett Howard for the Césaire Daiquiri. The recipe was created by bar manager Ashish Mitra as a tribute to Aimé Césaire, a French poet from Martinique. Once prepared, the Daiquiri donated a lime, grassy, and hint of floral bouquet to the nose. Next, lime and honey on the sip led into a grassy and floral swallow with a honey finish.
