‘The usual please!’

Updated: Aug 14, 2021




Cupboard cocktails were a significant trend of the last year, and even with the pubs and bars now open, the novelty is far from wearing off.


Parallel to this movement, our tastes in tipples are changing dramatically, with a shifting emphasis, in particular, on quality over quantity.


As a minimalist, health-conscious culture gains a foothold in the happy hour territory, the Daiquiri now (thankfully) looks a shadow of its former sickly sweet self.


Instead, this elegant, balanced cocktail is now perfectly aligned to the values of your average, sugar-conscious Daiquiri drinker.


Leading the way in this cocktail revolution, is Aluna, purveyors of an award-winning blend of rums from Guatemala and the Caribbean. Their vegan recipe uses all-natural toasted coconut and pure, sustainably sourced coconut water. Through a process of fermenting sugar cane with yeast from the pineapple plant, Aluna’s method creates a light, floral and smooth rum, with a natural subtle sweetness, which allows the mouth-watering flavour of coconut to shine through every sip!


As a ‘cupboard cocktail’ staple for the sundowner season ahead, it’s safe to say Aluna takes ‘the usual’ Daiquiri order… and turns it into anything but!
