3 Ingredient Cocktails
A full-flavoured Daiquiri with a delicate touch of clove.
This flavoursome mix of coffee and chocolate is further enhanced if vanilla-infused rum is used.
A spirituous Martini-style cocktail. Be sure to stir well as dilution is key.
Slightly sweet, this complex cocktail combines flavours of red wine with subtle herbal notes and is fortified with light rum.

A balanced (far from sweet) and flavoursome Margarita with the rich cognac and orange notes of the liqueur adding to this drink's depth of flavour.
A Daiquiri-like cocktail made in the style of a Caipirinha.
Your choice of honey and indeed rum will greatly affect the flavour, and indeed the success of the finished cocktail. More flavoursome honey demands a
Light, easy drinking and very refreshing.
Rum slightly sweetened and flavoured with the lime and clove flavours of falernum. There is much debate over the Corn 'N' Oil, particularly over the type
Basically a rum and coke with a squeeze of lime, but Cuba Libre has much more of a ring about it. And it is much more of a drink, the zesty lime and dashes

Light white rum mellowed by Italian vermouth and made interesting with bittersweet French Amer Picon liqueur.

Daiquiri No.1 Natural (Embury's 8:2:1 formula)
Traditionally a Daiquiri should always be based on light rum but if I should feel like breaking with tradition and using aged rum, I find Embury's 8:2:1

The classic 'Natural Daiquiri' with a hint of vanilla.
Twelve Miles Out Cocktail
Stir or shake (as originally stipulated in The Savoy Cocktail Book) this cocktail is still boozy. However, it's also wonderfully aromatic with all three
