Privateer Rum Rainier Cherry Daiquiri


It’s my favorite time of year! Cherry season! My favorite cherries are Ranier cherries. Those yellow-red cherries are just so delicious. I just buy pounds and pounds during the summer. And they’re great just washed and rapidly eaten on their own. But what if I put it in a drink? I remembered a great cherry daiquiri I had a few years ago at 1886 in Pasadena and decided to recreate it.

Privateer Rum Rainier Cherry Daiquiri

  • 2 oz. Privateer Silver Reserve rum
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • .5 oz simple syrup
  • 3 Ranier cherries (2 for muddling, 1 for garnish)

Gently muddle the cherries in your shaker. Add the rum, lime and simple with ice and shake. Strain into a cocktail glass. I normally would double-strain but since I want all those cherry bits, I left them in. Garnish with a cherry, preferably with a stem for that artsy look.
