Blackberry Peach Daiquiri

IMG_5020-3.JPG

Generally, I don't like over-fussy cocktails, but prefer to stick to the old originals as they should be served, or with simple twists to them. 

The classic Daiquiri is a mixture of rum, lime and sugar served over ice, it is thought to have originated in Cuba, in the town bearing the same name.

For my twist on the classic I have omitted the lime and added some peach and blackberry - because these two together are a match made in heaven and combined with rum - Enough said. 

You will need:

  • 2oz Rum (I use Appleton Estate)
  • 1oz fresh Peach juice
  • 1oz blackberry simple syrup
  • Peach slice to garnish
  • Crushed Ice

Place all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker, fill with crushed ice, shake and serve immediately into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish with a peach slice .
