This cocktail was inspired by the classic daiquiri. The simplicity of its ingredients allows our platinum rum to shine through and the vanilla bean simple syrup accentuates the flavors already present in the rum. This cocktail is perfect for a hot day, by the pool or beach. It is simple, quick to make, and very refreshing!
