Review:

I share Embury's appreciation of this fine, delicate Orange Daiquiri. However, we've tweaked his formulation as we found the original somewhat rich and over citrusy.

Variant:

Red Lion

History:

Created by David A. Embury, who in his 1948 Fine Art of Mixing Drinks writes of this drink: "As a grand finale to cocktails based on the Rum Sour, I give you one of my favorites which I have named after my favorite community." Larchmont is a village in Westchester County, New York where he lived for many years.

LARCHMONT
½ part Sugar syrup
2 parts Lime juice
2 parts Grand Marnier
6 parts White Cuban rum
Shake vigorously with crushed or cracked ice and strain into chilled and frosted cocktail glass. A twist of orange peel may be dropped into each drink for decoration if desired.

David Embury, 1948
