Derby Daiquiri
1 oz fresh orange juice
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 1/2 oz column still aged rum (Don Q Anejo)
A “handful” of crushed ice

Put everything into a kitchen or spindle blender at high speed for 15 seconds. Pour unstrained into a cocktail glass. In a spindle blender you won’t get as finally blended ice, but I assure you it will taste delicious.

2 oz Don Q Anejo
1 tsp. simple syrup
2 dashes orange bitters

Combine in a mixing glass with ice. Stir to chill (about 30 seconds). Strain into an old-fashioned glass with a single large ice cube. Garnish with fresh orange peel.
