He has 100% freedom to send me what ever he desires and I will gladly post it as my confidence in his ability is second to none. I really recommend trying some of these cocktails. Some of the recipes are classics, with his special twist, whereas some are entirely his own creation. He will let us know which category they fall into each week. Now that the introduction is over lets get to the fun part, drinking πŸ˜‰

Round 1:

The first round is a classic really, but the recipe is the way Calvin Shushu and I made it at Baraza back in the day before and during the Goldfish boom.

Strawberry Daquiri:

37.5ml white rum

12.5ml strawberry liquor

3 fresh strawberries de-leafed

12.5ml sugar syrup/water

a dash of freshly squeezed lime

Add strawberry juice for texture when blending with crushed ice, roughly 2 shots or so. The trick is to get a nice smooth consisty and balance, basically your straws should stand straight, but you can drink through them easily without pulling a face !

Put it in the funky’ist glass you have and you get away with a sugar rim and strawberry half for garnish πŸ˜‰
