blackbeard's daiquiri

1 1/2 oz Dark Rum (Coruba)
3/4 oz Brown Sugar Syrup
3/4 oz Lime Juice
2 dash Bittercube Black Strap Bitters

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with a lime wheel.
Two Fridays ago, I ventured into Sother Teague's I'm Just Here for the Drinks book and spotted his Blackbeard's Daiquiri. The name made me think of the late mid-century Blackbeard's Ghost, but this one was more of a dark and rich Daiquiri as opposed to an orchard fruit and spice-driven Tiki drink. In the glass, the Blackbeard's Daiquiri proffered a brown sugar and lime aroma. Next, caramel and lime notes on the sip flowed into dark funky rum flavors on the swallow with a lime finish.
