Daiquiris remain my favourite summer cocktail. The range of fruits you can mix and match is immense making it a playground for mixologists and experimental drinkers. Greek summers are followed by a long list of seasonal fruits and who could resist to a freshly fruity daiquiri by the Aegean. Today we will try sweet apricots and freshly picked spearmint.
- 2 fresh apricots without the pit (try a sweet and flavourful variety)
- 6 big spearmint leaves
- 2 oz/shots white rum (Havana Club 3 anos preferably)
- 1/2 oz/shot sugar syrup
- 1/2 oz/shot fresh lime juice
- spearmint to garnish
- crashed ice
Add all ingredients apart the crashed ice in a blender and blend until you get a smooth paste. Add in the crashed ice approximately to cover the paste. This should be around 2 cups of crashed ice. Blend the mix until you get a nice granite. You can adjust the acidity and sweetness at this point by adding more lime or syrup according to your taste preferences Garnish with the spearmint.
