At Lost Hours, the new Koreatown bar from the team behind Death & Co, the cocktail menu is structured around the four elements of nature: Air, Water, Earth, and Fire. From the Earth section, the Pennington Daiquiri zeros in on “green” flavors. “The grassiness of rhum agricole balanced by the herbaceous flavor of Suze helps create a complex but easy-drinking Daiquiri-inspired cocktail,” says beverage director Tyson Buhler.
1 oz. rhum agricole blanc (Lost Hours uses Rhum JM)
¾ oz. brandy (Lost Hours uses Bertoux)
¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
½ oz. Suze
½ oz. honey syrup (3:1)
¼ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
Tools: shaker, strainer, fine strainer
Garnish: lime wedge
Combine all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake until chilled. Double strain into a chilled coupe, then garnish.
