jazz daiquiri

2 oz Dark Rum (Plantation Original Dark)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
2 tsp Sugar (1/2 oz Simple Syrup)
1/4 oz Dark Crème de Cacao (Tempus Fugit)
7 bean Coffee

Blend all of the ingredients with 10 oz ice (muddle coffee beans, add the rest of the ingredients, shake with ice, and double strain). Serve in a Martini glass.
Two Tuesdays ago, I had read a mention of New Orleans' Manolito in the press, and I was curious if there was a recipe on the web that I could make at home. My search uncovered Nick Detrich's Jazz Daiquiri that found its way into Very Local New Orleans that reminded me of the Coffee DTO with a hint of chocolate. Manolito's menu declares that "this drink was originally made to honor musicians in Cuba" and states that they currently reach for Bacardi 8 Year in this libation. In the glass, the Jazz Daiquiri welcomed the nose with a rich coffee aroma from the muddled coffee beans. Next, lime and caramel mingled on the sip, and the swallow donated dark rum and coffee flavors that were accented by a hint of chocolate.
