Ghost of Paradise Daiquiri
When one imagines a summertime cocktail, often an image of a colorful, juicy, tropical-looking drink with an extravagant garnish of fresh fruit and cocktail umbrellas is conjured up, and for many of us, rum would typically play a major role in these types of drinks. This spirit’s connection to summer-themed drinks is undeniable, thanks to its prominent place in tiki bar culture. The Crafty’s bar team were therefore inspired to celebrate this classic relationship with our August box offering, Time Flies When You’re Having Rum. There is more to making a good rum cocktail than simply using multiple fruit juices and having a pretty garnish, however, and to truly highlight this spirit’s potential, many different avenues and flavor combinations were explored. While classic tiki-style ingredients such as Coco Lopez Coconut cream are featured in this month’s box, interesting herbal elements like tarragon and saffron play a prominent role, and unique flavor combinations such as nitro cold-brew coffee and apricot will challenge and delight your palette in unexpected ways. Step away from the same old hot weather flavors and get mixing with our rum and summer-inspired box, Time Flies When You’re Having Rum.
This box was designed using Havana Club 3-Year-Old Rum, a standard in many cocktail bars. Because this rum undergoes an aging process, it offers a much deeper depth of flavor than a standard white rum, but also has a subtlety to its profile that does not completely take over a cocktail, as might be the case with darker, more heavily spiced rums. Featuring a complex, balanced taste, with notes of molasses, oak, citrus, and tobacco, this rum introduces a refreshing yet bold element to cocktails that greatly enhance this month’s offerings, while still allowing all the other wonderful ingredients their chance to shine.
