Cocktail: The Sloe Lime Daiquiri
Posted by Arctic Wolf on October 30, 2009
Here is another daiquiri with a sloe gin influence. I find the addition of the sloe gin gives the cocktail a marvelous colour, as well as a nice touch of mellowness to counter the sharp lime. The trick with this cocktail is to float the sloe gin on top and then let it settle into the drink before you indulge.
Sloe Lime Daiquiri
by Chip Dykstra (Aka Arctic Wolf)
A wonderfully cold daiquiri to sip in the sun on a hot day.
1 Ounce Dark Rum (I prefer Angostura Royal Oak)
1/2 Ounce Fresh Lime juice or Roses Lime Cordial
1 Tsp simple syrup or Roses Grenadine
4 Large Ice Cubes
1 Chilled Glencairn Glass
1/2 Ounce Sloe Gin
Place the first 4 Ingredients in a Metal Martini Shaker.
Shake Until Martini Shaker Chills.
Strain Into a chilled Glencairn Glass.
Add the Ice from the Martini Shaker.
Float the Sloe Gin on the top and let everything sit for one minute.
Garnish with Lime Slice if desired….. Enjoy!!
I prefer the grenadine and Roses Lime Cordial to the simple sugar and Lime Juice in this one, but other cocktail purists may think I’m crazy on that point.
