Review:

"A tribute to all the special people in our life. A wish for those to come. The story of a journey and what stands behind it. The story of what stands by our side. A line to follow and a line to draw. A bottle, a boat, and my grandma's kitchen."

We say: I prefer 2:1 sugar syrup to caster sugar so I used 10ml in this recipe rather than the situlated "3 barspoons caster sugar". I love what the dry sherry adds to this Daiquiri but given the addition of salt perhaps manzanilla sherry would have been more appropriate than fino? Remembering this is a Legacy competition drink the "no garnish" seems a shame - poor drink is being send out to compete against the world undressed.

(For the dry sherry, Livio’s prefers to use Lustau Almacenista José Luis González Obregón)
