seas the day

1 1/2 oz Rhum Agricole (Clement Premiere Canne)
1/2 oz Blanco Tequila (Cimarron)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Pineapple Syrup
1/4 oz Strega

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orchid (ornamental pea blossom).
Two Thursdays ago, I began scanning the pages of the 2020 Community Cocktails book when I happened upon the Seas the Day. This unusual Daiquiri riff was crafted by Trevor Osterman at Seattle's Heartwood Provisions. Rhum agricole has worked well with tequila in Martin Cate's Menehune Gonzalez and my Gunwale Punch, so I was curious to see it in action again. The Seas the Day once prepared sailed in with a grassy funky aroma. Next, lime and pineapple on the sip cruised into funky rum melding into tequila via the vegetal element on the swallow along with pineapple and Strega's spice flavors.
