From other users
  • Made with 3yo Havana Club. A good slightly herbal daiquiri-esque tiki drink. IBA suggests it should be 1oz rum and ½oz everything else although I think it's likely better with more rum (at least 1½ and maybe even 2oz). — ☆☆☆

The IBA suggests the proportion is 2:1 Rum:Others rather than 3:1 in this cocktail. Other recipes I've found suggest that it's 2oz rum instead of 1½. I don't see a lot of support for the garnish either although some sort of fruit wedge/slice seems is not unusual.
