Amara at Paraiso, Chef Michael Schwartz’s Modern American restaurant with Latin influence and some of the best views Miami has to offer has enlisted the expertise of lead bartender Jonathan Cano to create our first celebratory drink. Born in Colombia and raised in Miami, Jonathan felt it was fitting to put his spin on what he calls, “the most notable Cuban cocktail of all time, a classic Daiquiri.”

When Jonathan was growing up, pineapples and bananas were a staple in his parents’ pantry. He’s incorporated these nostalgic fruits to the “Daiquiri del Diplomático” for a tropical flavor profile as well as toasted fennel seeds to round out the cocktail and add a touch of nutty spice as fall approaches.

Ingredients:

  • Diplomático Planas Rum 
  • Banana
