Why was this cocktail born in my head? Firstly,it’s because classical daiquiri is one of my favorites. I’m sure that all the optimum in cocktails can be found in the classical ones, and daiquiri ingredients in particular are most suitable to start a new cocktail creation. A number of biggest cities around the world have their own daiquiri varieties, such as Moscow, Tokyo, Sydney, Rio…. So what about the Lithuanian version? You can ask what of the ingredients are truly Lithuanian but the central point is Bacardi itself!
