Silver Daisy (Sparkling Rum Cocktail) Recipe

Vicky Wasik

The French 75 goes a little tiki in this rum-based rendition, from Jesse Cyr of Rob Roy in Seattle. Instead of the classic lemon, this version incorporates lime and a little orange curaçao. The drink is festively fizzy, fruity, and tart, with an underlying vanilla flavor thanks to the rum.
