huascar daiquiri

2 oz Flor de Caña 4 Year Rum (Uruapan Charanda Blanco)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
3/4 oz Simple Syrup

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and float 1/2 oz Cruzan Blackstrap Rum.
After returning home from volunteering at Speed Rack two Monday nights ago, I was in the mood for something refreshing. In the Brooklyn Bartender Book, I spotted Del Pedro's Huascar Daiquiri that he crafted at Tooker Alley. Del Pedro created this one night for a restaurant worker in the neighborhood Huascar who loved the combination. This Daiquiri greeted the nose with a lime and dark rum bouquet. Next, lime and caramel on the sip gave way to funky rum and molasses flavors on the swallow.
