This classic cocktail, adapted from the 1946 edition of the Stork Club Bar Book, is a twist on the daiquiri made with gold or dark rum and honey. We like to use a full-flavored rum made from molasses for a dark, sweet, assertive flavor.
- 1⁄4 oz. honey
- 2 oz. gold or dark rum
- 1⁄2 oz. fresh lime juice
- Lime zest, for garnish
Combine honey and 1 tsp. hot water in a cocktail shaker. Add rum, lime juice, and ice; shake vigorously and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with lime zest.
