Prepare to tickle your taste buds
This Cranberry and Chocolate Daiquiri recipe is perfect for those days when you want something decadent–and different! The tart flavors of cranberry and hint of chocolate make it a great winter cocktail. (Learn more about the aphrodisiac properties of cranberries and chocolate.) But this recipe also works for a girls retreat at the beach or a romantic escape any time of the year.
Mixologist Manny Hinojosa created the recipe to showcase the unique flavor of The Perfect Puree’s cranberry puree. Unlike cranberry juice, this puree offers the intensity of the pure fruit in a way that’s reminiscent of cranberry sauce. It’s surprisingly different but perfect for cocktails like this one. We love that he added a dash of oh-so-aphrodisiac chocolate bitters for complexity and decadent aromatics. A daiquiri really doesn’t get more unique than this.
A note on ingredients:
Hinojosa, a Bacardi brand ambassador, makes his Cranberry and Chocolate Daiquiri with Bacardi’s 1909, thus the cocktail’s name. 1909 is a limited edition white rum based on Bacardi’s original creation, Bacardi Superior. But you can always use your favorite white rum in the recipe.
This twist on a classic daiquiri will awaken your senses with the flavors of cranberry puree and chocolate bitters.
