How to make ...

Basil and Honey Daiquiri

The Basil & Honey Daiquiri is a twist on the simple classic, by adding basil you get a sweet herbal note that provides a big lift in the cocktail and the honey adds a great texture that compliments both the rum and the basil.

Method

Chill your martini glass in the freezer or fill it with ice.

Take your Boston glass or small tin and, using your jigger to measure, add the rum and honey to the shaker.

Using your Mexican elbow and your jigger to measure, squeeze 25ml of lime juice and add it to the shaker.

Strip 5-10 basil leaves from their stems and add them to the shaker.

Fill your shaker with cubed ice and seal using your Boston tin or lid, before shaking vigorously for 10-15 seconds or until your tin is very cold.

Remove your glass from the freezer, or empty of ice if necessary.

Using your Hawthorne strainer and your fine strainer, double strain the cocktail into your chilled Martini glass. Garnish with a basil leaf.

Serve and enjoy!

History

The Basil & Honey Daiquiri is a twist on the simple classic that contains rum, sugar and lime. By adding basil you get a sweet herbal note that provides a big lift in the cocktail and the honey adds a great texture that compliments both the rum and the basil.

The Daiquiri is named after a mine in Cuba where the alleged creator of the cocktail was working at the time. Since the Basil and Honey Daiquiri is a TT Liquor creation, we are unaware of any myths or legends.. yet.

Whilst Jennings Cox certainly deserves the credit of being the first to write and publish a recipe for the Daiquiri, it’s likely that a simple mixture of rum, lime and sugar existed in some for or another long before Cox’s creation in the 1890’s.

A twist on the classic rum cocktail, the Basil & Honey Daiquiri could be a great addition to your mobile bar hire.

This summery, herbaceous cocktail gives a modern and invigorating spin to a classic drink and works brilliantly as part of a rum-based cocktail menu.

The Basil & Honey Daiquiri is the perfect drink for a summer bar hire and would go great alongside some other rum-based summer classics such as a Mojito or a Mai Tai. If you want to stick with a herbal theme for your menu,  you could even consider a Strawberry and Basil Mojito or a Basil Gin Fizz.

Basil works as a great alternative in any cocktail that includes mint, so if you want to try a herb-y spin on your favourite minty cocktail, like the South Side or the Mint Julep, just let your event organiser know.

The Basil & Honey Daiquiri has a mild and moreish flavour but it hides a good kick of white rum, for those wanting to serve some lower-alcohol cocktails or longer drinks alongside it there are some great options including mocktails and a range of beers.

If your keen to wow your guests with some other intriguing flavours there are a bunch of modern cocktails containing some adventurous ingredients like the Eastern Sour, a tiki-style twist on the classic Whiskey Sour which adds orange juice and orgeat (a syrup made from almonds.)

If you’re planning a menu that includes the Basil & Honey Daiquiri and want to know more about what drinks you might want to accompany it be sure to speak to your event organiser about your options or check out some other rum-based, herbaceous, or sour-style cocktails from our list.
