La Florida Rum Daisy

The "Rum Daisy" appeared in a 1930s book from the famed bar La Florida in Havana. The original recipe called for Bacardi rum, but Jeff Berry recommends Cruzan Aged Light Rum from the Virgin Islands, Flor de CaƱa Extra Dry from Nicaragua or Mount Gay Special Reserve from Barbados.
