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.
This cocktail 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.
Created February 2019 by yours truly, 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.
