Our Comment:

Named due to this drink’s friendly approachability and The Persuaders! (a 1970s British TV series starring Tony Curtis and Roger Moore made brilliant by John Barry’s theme music). The Persuader harnesses rum’s affinity to pineapple juice and is Daiquiri-like but with white wine’s acidity replacing that of lime juice. Chinotto liqueur adds delicate chocolaty citrus complexity with a touch of rich vanilla liqueur adding balancing sweetness.

About:

Created February 2019 by yours truly (Simon Difford), this is a riff on the Palermo, a cocktail I came across in 2001 and the first cocktail I encountered that replaced the acidity of citrus fruit with white wine.
