Prairie Daiquiri

Prairie Daiquiri

We gave the daiquiri a touch of Midwestern beauty with our rhubarb, lemon verbena, and chamomile tea, Days of Heaven. This herbal tea blend transforms white rum into a modern aromatic infusion. This fruity floral cocktail is a delightful opener for a dinner party al fresco. Serve it up in either a coupe or a Nick and Nora glass.

Recipe is for 1 drink.
Tea-infused rum recipe makes enough for 2 drinks.
Allow 1 hour for rum infusion.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Days of Heaven tea 
  • 5 ounces white rum
  • 1 ounce Luxardo cherry liqueur 
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice
  • lime slice (optional)

Preparation

  • In a glass container, add 1 tablespoon Days of Heaven tea to 5 ounces of rum.
  • Infuse for 1 hour, stirring or shaking every 30 minutes.
  • Remove tea from rum by pouring it into a glass through a fine mesh strainer.*
  • If making 2 drinks, double the amount of all ingredients.
  • In an ice-filled shaker, add Days of Heaven-infused white rum, Luxardo, and lime juice.
  • Shake until cold and frothy.
  • Pour into a Nick and Nora glass.
  • Garnish with a lime slice. 

*Makes 4 ounces of Days of Heaven-infused rum. You will lose 0.5-1 ounce of liquid in the infusion process from tea leaf absorption.
