Charles Schumann. Legendary bartender, hospitality icon, and all round great guy. Founder of Schumann’s Bar in Munich – world renowned for his world class style and gentlemanly-ness. Also, creator of the Charles Daiquiri, which is said (by Schumann) to be one of three cocktails specifically designed to impress. This is a take on the classic Daiquiri, with a little more style.
Think of something sugary - the classic Daiquiri is just that, rum and sugar. However, with the Charles Daiquiri, we add a little more soul, and a little more depth in both colour and palate. This is the kind of drink that can be consumed in plenty (sensibly, of course). To ensure the experience is executed in absolute style, it is imperative that this cocktails prepared by masterful hands – Schumann would have a stroke if he knew this tipple was being ill-prepared.
