Finca Vigia

Cross between a classic Daiquiri & Hemingway's with basil as a guest star.
2 oz Rum, Havana Club 7
12 oz Triple sec, Cointreau
34 oz PInk grapefruit juice
12 oz Lemon juice
1 bsp Rich simple syrup 2:1
6 lf Basil
1 ds Bitters, Angostura
Add all ingredients. Shake. Double Strain. Serve in a coupe. Garnish with fresh grated nutmeg & one basil leaf.
Picture shows Cardamom bitters but I switched to Angostura.
The starting point was Hemingway's Daiquiri and then it morphed into this tasty variation. Named after the house in Cuba were Hemingway lived and which is now a museum.
