  • Not as different from a normal daquiri as I expected. — ★★★
  • Tried with the Educated Barfly specs (2oz rum, .75 oz lime, .5oz falernum, .25oz orange liqueur) and it was delicious and nicely balanced for me. — ★★★★
  • Also good with more falernum (1/2 oz) and orange curacao (1/4 oz). — ★★★
  • I loved the recipe from PDT as it appears in Mixel: 2 oz rum (I used El Dorado 15), 1 oz lime juice, 1/2 oz Cointreau, 1.2 Velvet falernum. Shake, strain, garnish with lime wheel. — ★★★★★
  • 3cl Lime Juice, 1,5cl Falernum, 1,5cl Orange Liqueur
  • Made it with Punch proportions, aged Havana Club, PFDC. — ★★★
  • Haigh recipe emphasizes rum with 2 ds triple sec and 2 tsps Falernum and 3/4 oz lime. — ★★★

Curated this to conform to the VS&FC recipe. Updated creator and source information.

Good but I found it a bit tart, cut it back to heavy 1/2 oz and found it to be better balanced

Alternate Recipe via PUNCH:

  • 1 1/2 ounces rum (preferably El Dorado 5 Year)
  • 1/2 ounce falernum
  • 1/4 ounce orange curacao (preferably Pierre Ferrand)
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice
