How to make ...

Mister Nephews Daiquiri

A classic dry, sour, citrusy Daiquiri with an extra layer of richness from dark rum, and a hit of dryness thanks to a splash of Maraschino liqueur.

Method

Chill a martini glass/coupette 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 sugar syrup to the shaker.

Using your bar spoon (5ml) to measure, add the Maraschino to the shaker.

Using your Mexican elbow and a jigger to measure, squeeze 25ml of lime juice and add it 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 it of ice if necessary.

Using your Hawthorne strainer and your fine strainer, double strain your cocktail into your chilled martini glass or coupette.

Garnish with a lime wheel, cut to balance on the edge of the glass.

Serve and enjoy!

History

This is a twist on the original Daiquiri, using dark rum and adding a dash of Maraschino Liqueur. The aged rum rounds the drink out whilst he liquor adds some extra dryness and mouthfeel.

The Wray and Nephew brand is now most associated with their infamous overproof rum, However for many years Wray and Nephew operated as a complete rum distillery and plantation producing a range of different rums. This cocktail was originally designed for their fifteen year special reserve, however as its popularity grew, stocks of this special blend quickly depleted.

The Daiquiri is the daddy of all rum cocktails. This simple mixture of rum, lime and sugar is the basis for most modern rum drinks and a bonafide classic.

The Mister Nephew’s Daiquiri is a version created by Trader Vic himself for his chain of tiki bars. This rich and complex take on the Daiquiri replaces the usual white rum with spicy, molasses-rich dark rum and the recipe adds a drop of maraschino liqueur to give the drink a long dry finish.

This drink is a grown-up sibling to the rest of the tiki family, served straight-up and comprising only of a few simple ingredients rather than the usual myriad of juices, syrups and spirits found in most tiki cocktails.

This makes it a great accompaniment to more slow-serving and voluminous offerings like the Hurricane or the Zombie.

If rum’s your thing but you want to stick to short, simple cocktails rather than long, elaborate tiki drinks then why not consider serving the Mister Nephews Daiquiri alongside something like a Mai Tai or a Dark & Stormy.

If you’re planning a rum-based menu then remember that a lot of rum cocktails, including the Mister Nephew’s Daiquiri, are quite high in alcohol, though they may not taste it. With this in mind you may want to think about serving some low-alcohol cocktails or even some beers alongside it, speak to your event organiser to hear about the range of beers we offer for mobile bar hires.

If you’re planning to include the Mister Nephew’s Daiquiri on your menu and want to know more about what drinks might go well with it, be sure to speak to your event organiser about your options, or check out some other rum-based, tiki-style and sour-style cocktails from our list.
