Shake and strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a long dash of Peychaud's across the top of drink.


Caiafa says original recipe calls for Cuban rum, but he has also adapted it to use a rhum agricole. He also substitutes genever to turn it into a "Soho Flamingo."


Caiafa credits this to Ted Saucier, "Bottoms Up" 1951.

  • I found this to be really good. I made with El Dorado 3yr which is delicious, but I bet it's be great with an agricole. Like a tiki-style daiquiri. — ★★★★
