Drink DuJour: The Huntsman

It’s the perfect time for a tropical cocktail

A refreshing change of pace for vodka and rum drinkers alike, this sweet green drink is a sophisticated concoction masquerading as a typical daiquiri. “The Huntsman is a perfect introduction to the world of full-flavored, tropical rum cocktails,” says award-winning mixologist and owner of Fort Defiance in Brooklyn John Frizell.

“It takes the classic daiquiri formula and ‘splits the base,’ as we say in the bar world, with vodka taking the lead and the rich Bacardi Ocho used as an accent.”

It’s perfect for sipping on a white sand beach or a New York City rooftop this summer.
