Heart of Stone Daiquiri

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

The subtle apricot flavor of this nutty winter Daiquiri and the allspice dram used to rinse the glass remind Leo Robitschek of holiday fruitcake.

  1. 1/4 ounce St. Elizabeth allspice dram (rum-based allspice liqueur)
  2. Ice
  3. 1 ounce white rum
  4. 3/4 ounce amontillado sherry
  5. 1/2 ounce apricot liqueur
  6. 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  7. 1/4 ounce cane syrup (see Note)
  1. Rinse a chilled coupe with the allspice dram and pour out the excess. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients and shake well. Strain the drink into the prepared glass.
Notes Sweet, thick cane syrup is available at Whole Foods and cocktailkingdom.com.
