What can I say, I might have a fable for green food but for drinks too. You know what, somehow the taste is always too good. Today´s liquid recipe is a real classic and almost everybody knows it. The Daiquiri got its roots in Cuba and the famous Ernest Hemingway already knew about its great taste. It is a Sour and among the family of other great short drinks. It is basically made of white rum, sirup and lime or lemon. Sure today you might find a huge variety of this cocktail but it will always be made by the basics. That being said, I thought why not giving it a go for my very own.
So what did I do? First of all it needed to be simple yet a little different. I think you already saw my Cucumber Lemonade earlier on the blog which was basically the ground structure. I blended the cucumber with my new Vitamix and skipped the sirup by just using plain sugar. To give the drink a sour touch, I added fresh Lemon juice and peel. I personally like the sours made with a bit of egg white, which I used as well. The rest is history and you can find it underneath in the recipe section. It might not be the first and also not the last interpretation of this drink, but it is my very own one and I really enjoyed having a few of it after taking the pictures.
Maybe you want to try it out yourself and be surprised about its taste. Skol!
