Classic Space Daiquiri

One of few humans worthy of honorary citizenship in our Galaxy is the esteemed Hunter S Thompson. Hunter the famous Gonzo Journalist and the inspiration for the Doonesbury character Duke. Hunter was epically played by Bill Murray in Where the Buffalo Roam and wrote one of our favorite books Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

In honor of Mr. Thompson the Classic Space Daiquiri

Dark Rum* -            9 parts/4.5cl
Fresh Lime Juice -      4 parts/2cl
Gomme Syrup –         1 part/0.5cl

Pour into a shaker glass filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain and pour into a chilled cocktail glass, we recommend a traditional Up Martini Glass.

Optional accents – sugar coated rim, and a lime wheel

* The recipe calls for light rum but we hate light rum! We suggest Myers, Mount Gay or Appleton Estates from Jamaica.

We highly recommend keeping a thermos of these handy with you wherever you go. To say they haven’t come in handy during some very stressful hyperspace jumps would be an understatement!
