I found this while looking for Caribbean recipes for ZWT 9 on It states: "The Cuban forerunner of the Daiquiri, as drunk by Cuban revolutionaries fighting off the Spanish at the end of the nineteenth century. Achieve the perfect balance between sweet honey and sour lemon and this is a great drink." Sound like my kind of drink!!


  1. Stir honey with rum in the glass drink is to be served inches Add lemon juice and ice. Stir and serve.

Really good, but too sweet for me. I halved the honey and it was still too sweet. I'll try it again using only a half T. of honey. Love the simplicity and sweet/tart thing going on.Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Gotta love it when you can make a nice cocktail from ingredients you have on hand. I'm actually enjoying this heated instead of iced, since my honey wasn't really runny enough to stir into the rum. Kind of like drinking a hot toddy, but the rum gives it a completely different flavor. Although I think I prefer rum with lime to rum with lemon; this is good, and I'd certainly not turn it down if offered again. Made for ZWT9
