Our Comment:

This fruity Daiquiri is superb when made with quality pomegranate syrup and white rum to emerge with an off-white hue. Other renditions of this classic are ruby red - hardly a 'White' Lion.


Adapted from a recipe purloined from David Embury's classic 1948 book, The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.
