I don’t know much about babies but I do know this: babies love rum. This may come as a surprise to a lot of you, but just ask my friends Kristy and Miguel (my friend and fellow drinkstagrammer), who anagrammed their new daughter Raleigh Ursa Mayer Mejia, AKA RUM. I don’t make the rules, people. I have already proclaimed her my little niece, and decided she should have her first eponymous cocktail, a daiquiri made with gummy bears.⠀
2 oz white rum⠀
1 oz lime juice⠀
.5 oz gummy bear simple syrup⠀
Your basic daiquiri, just for kidz. I made the syrup with melted gummy bears (the “organic” ones, I’m not a monster). Much love, dear Rummy, from your Auntie Gin Gin ❤️⠀
PS - I bought a 5 lb gummy bear for this drink/photo. It is huge. It immediately started to attract all the ants in the Pacific Northwest and then ended up taking up 1/10 of my fridge until I could take the photo. Who’s the best Auntie EVER??
