Craft Strawberry Daiquiri (Kevin Liu)

A craft drink for the cocktail novice
1 12 oz Light rum
1 oz Lime juice
12 oz Simple syrup (1:1)
1 T Strawberry preserves
1 dr Orange flower water
Instructions
Shake, double strain, chilled coupe, no garnish.
Notes
Fruit preserves are 1) a great way to emphasize familiar, approachable flavors for cocktail novices; 2) highly concentrated, textured, balanced by acidity, and cheaper than liqueurs or syrups. This format works equally well with other fruit preserves; try orange marmalade or apricot.
