Daq to the Future
1.5oz Bacardi Superior
0.5oz Luxardo Maraschino
1oz Clarified Pineapple Juice Pinch of Citric Acid
1 Dash of Bitters
Served with a segment of salted pineapple in a glass, rimmed with smoked jalapeno salt.
Daq to the Future is like the nouveau, chic hippie version of the classic Hemingway Daiquiri. The Hemingway Daiquiri was inherently meant to be a liquor-forward cocktail. The omission of sugar is meant to allow the sweetness of the rum and maraschino liqueurs to balance the citrus on their own. It was a very masculine version of the daiquiri. Orlando’s version plays to that booze forward note as well, but it does it in a more tropical way. Daq to the Future’s whole ethos is to tame the islands and bring all of those flavours together. It’s Four Seasons meets Four Loko.
1oz Dobel Tequila
1/2 oz Aperol
1/2 oz Clarified Lemon Juice (or just lemon juice, because we like our drinks pretty)
1/2 oz simple syrup
Stir and strain into a very well chilled coupe style glass and top with grapefruit jalapeno foam (optional).
