Cocktail: Sloe Lime daiquiri

  • Feb 24, 2010
In truth this is not a true daiquiri, but rather a daiquiri styled cocktail.  A true daiquiri would never have the ice added.  The ice does however serve two purposes for this cocktail.  The first is obvious; it keeps it cold on a hot day.  The second purpose is to help the sloe gin more evenly diffuse into the drink.  When you try the cocktail notice how the melting ice and the sinking sloe gin causes the cocktail to change in character from start to finish. Each sip is just a little different from the last making this unique from start to finish.

I also find the addition of the sloe gin gives any cocktail a marvelous colour, as well as a nice touch of mellow sweetness to counter the sharp acidic citrus elements. The trick with this cocktail is to float the sloe gin on top and then let it settle into the drink before you indulge.


Sloe Lime Daiquiri
by Chip Dykstra (Aka Arctic Wolf)

A wonderfully cold daiquiri to sip in the sun on a hot day.

Sloe Lime Daiquiri 1 Ounce Dark Rum (I prefer Angostura Royal Oak)
1/2 Ounce Fresh Lime juice (sub Lime Cordial)
1 Tsp simple syrup (sub  Grenadine)
4 Large Ice Cubes
1 Chilled Glencairn Glass
1/2 Ounce Sloe Gin

Place the first 4 Ingredients in a Metal Martini Shaker.
Shake Until Martini Shaker Chills.
Strain Into a chilled Glencairn Glass.
Add the Ice from the Martini Shaker.
Float the Sloe Gin on the top and let everything sit for one minute.
Garnish with Lime Slice if desired….. Enjoy!! 

I  will sometimes use grenadine and Roses Lime Cordial when  sugar syrup and Lime Juice are not available.

About this topic


Daiquiris are a style of drink served with rum, citrus juice, sugar and a flaouring ingredient.  The first daiquiris were reputed to have been created in Cuba using Bacardi Rum.  Intenational fame was aquired when it became known that Earnest Hemmingway  was a huge fan of this style of drink.

According to Wikipedia, The daiquirí is one of six most basic cocktails. These six cocktails are featured  in David A Embury's book  The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.
