In what looks set to be a sunny week in the city, one bar is helping Glaswegians get into the summer spirit by launching a special menu in celebration of National Daiquiri Day, which is Wednesday 19th July.
The West End cocktail bar, The Drugstore Social is working with Bacardi for a roster of drinks designed by head bartender Kevin Hunt.
Look out for the Daiquiri Punch featuring rhubarb and pea shoot syrup alongside Bacardi Carta Blanca, Bacardi Carta Negra, apple mint tea and Escubac to create a light and refreshing drink that is perfect for sharing.
Other unconventional twists include the Shogun’s Daiquiri made using Bacardi Carta Blanca, Rum Agricole, Umeshu Sake, Orgeat syrup, lime juice, giving it a tropical edge with a moreish savory finish from the Sake.
Traditionalists, however, need not worry as the classic daiquiri will be available alongside favourites such as the Hemingway Daiquiri.
Kevin told Glasgowist: “We are thrilled to host National Daiquiri Week with Bacardi. Together, we will help showcase this wonderful summer drink and show how versatile it is. It’s delicious in its classic form or with a touch of fruit, but it also tastes great when blended with other spirits, infusions and even vegetables!
“Our celebratory menu will surprise and delight our customers and offer them the chance to try something new. Everything on the daiquiri menu is made fresh on site and uses the highest quality ingredients, celebrating flavours from around the world. We think Daiquiri Day is cause for celebration, so we’ve made a whole week of it!”
The menu features five styles of daiquiri which will be available from Monday July 17 until Sunday 23. There will also be a special daiquiri fountain as well as a party for trade staff on Tuesday night.
The Drugstore Social can be found at 67 Old Dumbarton Road.
