Caprese Daiquiri


This ultra-savory daiquiri evokes the flavors of a caprese salad (tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella), one of mixologist Mathias Simonis’s favorite things to eat. He has created versions with oregano-infused rum and extra garnishes like olives and pickled peppers, which are fun to snack on.

  1. 4 cherry tomatoes
  2. 2 basil leaves
  3. 3/4 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  4. Pinch each of salt
  5. Pinch of freshly ground pepper
  6. 2 ounces white rum
  7. 3/4 ounce Simple Syrup
  8. 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  9. Ice
  10. Herbed olive oil and 1 mini mozzarella ball skewered with 1 cherry tomato and 1 basil leaf, for garnish
  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the 4 cherry tomatoes with the 2 basil leaves, the vinegar, salt and pepper. Add the rum, Simple Syrup and lime juice, fill the shaker with ice and shake well. Fine-strain into a chilled coupe and garnish with the olive oil, mozzarella ball, cherry tomato and basil leaf.
