New Cocktail Ideas: Raspberry Daiquiri

New Cocktail Ideas: Raspberry Daiquiri
By Mitch Hightower

Our good friend Michael Sereno suggested I make a Daiquiri cocktail for a lunch we were planning and so I did some research.  Usually when I think of a Daiquiri, I think of a blended ice type of drink.  However, the original Daiquiri recipe is light rum, lime juice and simple syrup, shaken over ice and served like a Martini.

I did some experimenting, and I came up with a recipe using rum, lime juice, grenadine and fresh, no-cook raspberry coulis.  My partner Chef Philip made the batch of coulis, find his recipe here:

So when Michael came over for lunch I served this new cocktail, and I'd have to say it was a tasty success.  I had to make a second round!

Look for this recipe in an upcoming episode of Kitchen Queers on YouTube® when KQ Season 3 begins in February!
