"The Spice Also Rises | Crafted Pour"

"I love daiquiris, but honestly, the classic Hemmingway riff is not my favorite without changing the specs quite a bit. I find it to be imbalanced and dry, despite falling on the less sweet end of the preference spectrum. But I love grapefruit, so here is a spicy take that replaces cherry liqueur with aperol and grapefruit juice with liqueur for a more concentrated flavor.  The specs might read slightly sweet, but it helped to balance some of the spice. This drink evolves a bit since some of the spice gradually enters through a coated straw kindly gifted by @seasoned_straws. I’m a sucker for drinks that change before your eyes (?tongue), so this was a lot of fun. The basil garnish gave a great counter aroma, so don’t forget to add it. It works especially well with this rum, which uses some sugarcane juice, so there are more fresh and grassy notes. This drink is also lovely served as a more traditional daiquiri.", "undefined", "The Spice Also Rises",
