This cocktail, also known as the Cynar Daiquiri, blends the Italian digestivo with dark rum. With lemon juice and simple syrup, this drink is refreshing, delicious, and powerful.

    • 1 ounce Cruzan Black Strap Rum
    • ½ ounce Cynar
    • 1 ounce lemon juice
    • ½ ounce simple syrup

Combine spirits with ice and shake vigorously until properly diluted (to about one and a half ounces). Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
