Empire Daiquiri Cocktail

Rum is one of those spirits that makes you think of a tropical vacation in the islands, but why should you just wait until you go to the Bahamas to have a refreshing rum-based cocktail? With summer coming, rum is a great liquor to serve as a base spirit in fun, festive cocktails to bring about that feeling of the islands.

Bryan, who has been working behind the stick for more than a decade and helped open LA’s Soho House, sourced a couple of ingredients from Abe’s — Morris Kitchen‘s spiced apple syrup and Bittercube Bittersblackstrap bitters — to concoct this delicious and easy-to-make drink that will no doubt transport you to another space.
