Frozen Daiquiri (Papa Doble Style)

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 1.5 ounces White Rum
  • .5 ounce Maraschino Liqueur
  • 1 ounce Grapefruit Juice
  • 1.5 ounces Simple Syrup
  • 1 ounce Lime Juice

Blend all the ingredients with a handful of ice and strain into a special frozen-drink glass or into a medium-size wineglass.

Constantino (Constante) Ribalaigua Vert at the El Floridita Bar in Havana, Cuba, created the original frozen Daiquiri. I adapted Constante's recipe to accommodate today's larger glassware and to sweeten it slightly. Constante added the juice of the Marsh grapefruit, a very sweet seedless variety from the Isle of Pines near Havana, as well as maraschino liqueur to provide a delicate floral note.
