It’s beastly hot and humid here in NYC; too beastly for me to indulge in my usual tipples, so this evening before dinner I squeezed half a lime into a tall (12 oz) glass, melted some sugar into the juice, threw in the spent peel, iced it, chugged in several ounces of black Barbados rum, and topped it off with seltzer from the gasogene.
Quite refreshing. But do you call it a Daiqiuiri With Soda? A Rum Collins with Lime Instead of Lemon? Has someone put this particular highball together before, or am I doomed to go down in booze history as the inventor of the “Ukulele Ike” ?
