Review:

Fino sherry and Peychaud's Bitters brilliantly sets this riff on a classic Daiquiri apart. Beautifully balanced and delicately flavoured. If you apply the charcoal rim, perhaps leave a lipstick saving space rather than encircling the rim.

History:

Created in 2014 for Bacardi Legacy by Roman Foltan at The Artesian Bar at The Langham Hotel, London, England.
