Serve in

1 fl oz Fino sherry
½ fl oz Freshly squeezed lime juice
fl oz Sugar syrup (2 sugar to 1 water)
2 dash Peychaud's Aromatic Bitters
  • Display recipe in:

How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.


Charcoal rim & grapefruit zest twist (discarded)


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


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