Don’t confuse this Daiquiri with the classic, frozen mixed drink. This version, created for the first time at the Hotel Nacional in Cuba, is made with a healthy dose of rum that is complimented by light touches of citrus and apricot flavor.


  • 2 ounces white rum
  • 3/4 ounce apricot brandy
  • 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
  • Maraschino cherry to garnish


  1. Pour all of the ingredients, except for the garnish, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake the mixture vigorously for 35 seconds and then strain into cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish the cocktail with the Maraschino cherry and then serve immediately.
