Sparkling Pineapple Daiquiri

by James Stevenson

Today’s cocktail is a great New Year’s edition inspired by my recent trip to Louisiana where I discovered rum, food, and culture. The primary reason for the trip was a visit to the Bayou Rum Distillery and while here we not only got to hold baby alligators and enjoy the different expressions they create but I also discovered that the brand creates some really great rums that I had previously not tried.

After this revelation and with a bottle of Bayou Silver Rum now in my possession I started creating some really tasty cocktails and this special New Years Eve cocktail in particular stood out so I though I would share it with you. This is a twist on a classic Daiquiri with a little pineapple juice for a bump in flavor and because it’s for such a special night we decided it wouldn’t be right unless it had some Champagne to top it off.
