Tjolululu! Obviously I like all of the cocktails that I post here. I make things that I would like to drink. It's not like making a cocktailmenu for a workplace where you also have to adapt a little bit for your customers. Even though I like the previous cocktails I have made, I have to admit that this one is special. It is filled with all sorts of citrusfruits and it's inspired from asia. It's everything that I want and need in my life. Way to often I feel that the citrus sole purpose in a cocktail is to balance out another more dominating flavour. Constantly being the runner up can't be fun, so therefor this one is all about the citrus.
This twist on a daquiri contains white rum infused with lemongrass, a shrub made out of kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass and cezt from limes, lemons, grapefruits and oranges and finally it's balanced out with fresh lime juice and a bit of sugar syrup. It doesn't have to be harder than that. I made the shrub out of brown sugar, it was the only one I had at hand. Next time I will defenetly try to make it with white sugar and the cocktail will probably come out in a light yellowish color. I think it will be even more beautiful!
