This week I tried something different for our neighborhood St. Patricks week celebrations. Since I live in Florida, I wanted something cool and refreshing for our pool party. Sailor Jerry dark amber rum is a favorite with my sail boating friends on both coasts. This cocktail dates back to the 1960’s. I read that was a favorite libation of John F. Kennedy, who loved sailing off the coast of Cape Cod.

Sailor Daiquiri

Ingredients:

1.5 ounces Sailor Jerry, the original spiced rum

1.5 ounces pineapple juice

.75 ounces lime sour

lime wheel for garnish

Method:

Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice.

Strain mixture into a chilled martini glass.

Garnish with lime wheel.

Tips:

Go easy, as Sailor Jerry rum is 92 proof. You can use any spiced rum for this daiquiri.

If you serve Captain Morgan spiced rum, it becomes a Captain Daiquiri.
