Before the doors open at New York City speakeasy Death + Company, it’s GDT, or “Gangster Daiquiri Time,” when a designated bartender makes a round for the staff, often riffing on the classic cocktail. This apple-and-cinnamon version was created by Death + Company alum Joaquín Simó.
- 2 ounces dark rum (like Mount Gay Eclipse; Simó says it adds “a crazy apple flavor”)
- ½ ounce lime juice
- ½ ounce pineapple juice
- ¼ ounce Demerara Syrup (2 cups Demerara syrup dissolved in 1 cup water)
- ¼ ounce cinnamon syrup
- 1 dash Angostura bitters
In a cocktail shaker, add all ingredients with ice. Shake well and strain into a coupe glass.
