This dark alter ego of the traditional daiquiri is inspired by the origin story of the pirate Black Bart, as told in Beachbum Berry's Potions of the Caribbean. The abridged version is that a non-drinking pirate captain was deemed by his men to not be "pistol proof" (aka, had no balls). To prove he was tough enough, the good John Roberts took to drinking, a little too well, and became the cruel drunken captain known as Black Bart. Luckily, there's nothing cruel about this drink; you're on your own as far as the drunken part goes. Our variation uses dark rum instead of the traditional white rum and is mixed with our grilled pineapple syrup instead of simple.
- 2 ounces dark rum
- 1 ounce grilled pineapple syrup
- 3/4 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
In a cocktail shaker with ice add the ingredients and shake until chilled, about 15 seconds.
Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a Red & Brown All Purpose Cocktail Cherry or grilled pineapple chunk.
