A classic Daiquiri with aged rum and a hint of chocolate.
Blended with crushed ice.
Thought to have been created by Constantino (Constante) Ribalaigua Vert at Havana's Floridita bar but in the Cuban book, 'Bartender's Sixth Sense' the cocktail is said to have been created in the 1940s by one Jose Maria Vazquez.
The drink was originally made with Bacardi Elixir, a liqueur made by infusing plums in rum. Crème de cacao liqueur has been used as a substitute since the 1970s. Production of Bacardi Elixir ended when Bacardi was forced to leave Cuba but a small batch of around 60 bottles were made to celebrate Bacardi Legacy Competition in April 2013.
