Happy Friday and more importantly happy National Daiquiri Day! Did you know that singer Kenny Cheney just launched a personal line of spirits called Blue Chair Bay Rum. The Rum is available in White, Coconut, Coconut Spiced flavors and is not a celebrity endorsement. Kenny dreamt up and funded the entire venture himself! I think he is the perfect celeb to start a line of spirits! Below is a recipe for his Strawberry Basil Daiquiri! Enjoy and have a great weekend!
Blue Chair Bay Rum Strawberry Basil Daiquiri
2 oz. Blue Chair Bay Rum
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup
1 strawberry, sliced
2 basil leaves
Muddle the strawberry and basil in the lime juice and simple syrup
Add Blue Chair Bay rum and ice and shake well
Strain into a martini glass
Garnish with basil leaf
Stay hungry, or in this case stay thirsty!
