The Sun Also Rises Recipe
The classic Hemingway Daiquiri, which features rum with lime juice as well as grapefruit juice and Maraschino Liqueur for sweetness, has been reworked into this cocktail. The Sun Also Rises provides more of an edge than before while still balancing out all those citrusy flavors. Plus, the addition of absinthe gives notes of anise flavor and aroma.
2 oz. Banks 5-Island rum
1 tsp Vieux Pontarlier absinthe or any absinthe of your choice
¾ oz. Lime juice, freshly squeezed
½ oz. Grapefruit juice, freshly squeezed
In an ice-filled shaker, pour all the ingredients.
Shake well until chilled.
Strain it into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass filled with crushed ice.
For lovers of cocktails, the Sun Also Rises is a liquid tribute to Ernest Hemingway and his 1926 novel. It was created by Jim Meehan - an award-winning bartender best known for work at the seminal New York cocktail bar PDT.
