Cocktail Hour: The Yongehurst Daiquiri
Posted by Arctic Wolf on August 14, 2016
The Yongehurst Distillery is a brand new Micro-Distillery located at 346 Westmoreland Ave near Dupont and Dovercourt in Toronto, Ontario. The facility is owned by long-time friends, Rocco Panacci and John-Paul Sacco who are making what just might be Toronto’s first micro-distilled rum upon their brand new small pot/column combination still.
A little over a month ago I was contacted by fellow rum lover Blair Phillips, who like me reviews the odd spirit or two. He had just received a rum sample from the Yongehurst Distillery and was curious about the taste profile he encountered which to him was quite unlike other white rums he had sampled in the past (see his review here).
When Blair described what he was tasting, a vegetal white rum with grit and character, I immediately began to think of citrus based cocktails which might be pushed to a new level by this sort of rum, and when the folks at Yongehurst reached out to me for an independent review I had my chance to put theory to the test.
The Yongehurst Daiquiri was the result. (Yumm!)
2 oz Yongehurst Harbour Rum
3/4 oz Fresh Orange Juice
3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz sugar syrup (1:1 ratio)
Add the first four ingredients with ice into a metal shaker
Shake until the outside of the shaker begins to frost
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with a strip of orange peel
(Please enjoy Responsibly!)
