- 1½ oz. pot-still Rum
- ¾ oz. Fresh Lime Juice
- 1 oz. Orgeat*
- 2 oz. chilled Champagne
- 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
- 6-8 Mint Leaves
- ½ - ⅔ Vanilla Bean
- Add all ingredients (except the Champagne) to an ice-filled Cocktail Shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into a rocks glass over the champagne. Garnish with ½ - ⅔ of a vanilla bean.
- *See our Orgeat recipe/video or use commercially available Orgeat.
This is our take on Audry Saunder’s Old Cuban. We replace her simple syrup with orgeat and use a younger/edgier pot-stilled rum. Rich and creamy, tart and sweet, this complex concoction is a funky fizzy daiquiri. Enjoy!
