“The classic Cuban Daiquiri—a mixture of rum, lime, and sugar—and the Technicolor, fruit-bomb frozen version sold along Bourbon Street couldn't be more different. In his sophisticated Double R Daiquiri served at PX in Alexandria, Virginia, owner/bartender Todd Thrasher builds on the classic by combining the two r's—rhubarb and rosemary—to create a Daiquiri that blends style with substance.Bon Appetit Magazine, April 2009 - my good friend Laira served this at a brunch she had and she got rave reviews ;)”
