Strawberry Daiquiri (JL remix)

A seasonal revamp with new layers of flavor. 

Fresh fruit has been shaken or blended into Daiquiris for decades, and this revamped version from Miami twists that formula even further. Dry sherry gives the drink length and an added dimension, while familiar seasonings further expand the drink’s flavor. “I think salt and pepper are some of the most underused ingredients in cocktails,” says bartender Fraser Hamilton.


  • 1½ oz. white rum
  • ¾ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
  • ½ oz. manzanilla sherry
  • ½ oz. fresh lime juice
  • 2 fresh strawberries
  • Pinch each of salt and pepper
  • Tools: Glass:
  • Glass:Nick and Nora
  • Garnish:skewered strawberry half dusted with black pepper


Use a muddler to crush 2 strawberries in a shaker, then add the remaining ingredients and shake well with ice. Double strain into a chilled glass, then garnish.
