Grapefruit Daiquiri

Grapefruit Daiquiri

Rum in a Martini glass does not make a Daiquiri, and many purists would be quick to point out that this cocktail deviates substantially from the classic Daiquiri formula. Having said that, Rum and Grapefruit make for a harmonious combination. There's more than a little Tiki influence in this rich and exotic drink..
