“Why name a Branding & Graphic Design business after a cocktail, seriously?”
The answer is simple - making a cocktail is creative, fun and the final product looks brilliant. Kinda like designin’… Get it?
The Daiquiri allows for personalised taste (or aesthetic taste, as per business branding) as you can add the fruit of your choice to give it your fave colour and tang.
The daiquiri was invented by an American mining engineer working in Cuba in 1896 - whatta guy! He was expecting some high powered guests, but his supplies of gin had run out, so he experimented with rum - and voilà, my favourite cocktail was born!
Who doesn’t love a Friday (or Tuesday) afternoon cocktail?
• Cracked ice
• Juice of two limes
• One teaspoon sugar syrup
• 90ml traditional Barcardi
Method: Put loads of cracked ice into a cocktail shaker. Pour the lime juice, sugar syrup and rum over the ice. Shake thoroughly until a frost forms, then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. I love to muddle in strawberry and guava into the mix - delish!
