Flor De Cana Seersucker

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by dkatzdgc

Think that seersucker is a lackluster fabric donned by stuffy southern elite and wealthy beachcombers? Think again! Today, Seersucker is seeing a major resurgence; becoming a favorite of celebrities, designers, senators, and warm-weather seekers. Every year, the US senators celebrate the coming of summer by declaring the third Thursday in June Annual Senate Seersucker Day! The political leaders of our country trade their heavy suits for breathable and fashionable Seersucker – and you can join them or sip a celebratory original cocktail! This year, as you salute the popular annual Senate Seersucker Day, look to The Seersucker, Flor de Caña rum’s signature summer cocktail, to be as crisp, classic, and refreshing as the fabric itself. This cocktail packs a powerful punch - featuring fresh strawberries and a spicy, tangy cinnamon bark syrup.

Loved it! I tried several different grocery stores, and I never found cinnamon bark syrup, so I settled on a simple cinnamon syrup (the kind for flavoring coffee). I don't know if it's the same thing, but it sure was a good choice anyway. There are some interesting flavors going on here that makes this one excellent cocktail. The cinnamon/strawberry pairing added the perfect level of sweetness to offset the tart edge from the lemon juice that resulted in a very pleasant drink. I will enjoy it often while strawberries are in season. Thank you for sharing your recipe, dkatzdgc. Made for Spring 2011 Pick-A-Chef.
