Sugar Free Classic Daiquiri

The Sugar Free Daiquiri is based on the very old cocktail based out of the Caribbean.

It also has a long history, with it’s popularity waxing and waning during different times in history, depending a lot on war conditions and the availability of rum.  It at least dates back to 1909 and is referred to in David E. Embury’s book The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, as one of the six basic drinks.  Another interesting fact is that it was a favorite cocktail of Ernest Hemingway and President Kennedy!

The Sugar Free Metropole

The Sugar Free Metropole is a refreshing cocktail that captures a lot of the wonderful herby nuances from within the Dry Vermouth.  The bitters, which sometimes can be lost in complex cocktails, do add just that slightest bit of extra flavor.

We found the inspiration for the Sugar Free Metropole over at the Looka website (ran by Chuck Taggart).  He’s also got a little information on that page regarding the history of the Metropole, but I’ll summarize here as well!
