Tip Your Bartender is a social media initiative from PUNCH connecting our readers with bar teams across the country via Instagram. We’re asking select bartenders to share their drinks (albeit virtually) and encourage the PUNCH audience to “tip” during the economically uncertain times ahead.
Between March 30th and May 29th, for every dollar tipped to bar teams, the Bacardi family of brands has generously committed to matching it with an equal gift to our charitable partner, Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation.
Send a tip to the Reliable Tavern bar staff via Venmo by searching @Benlongtime10.
Kapri Robinson, Reliable Tavern | Washington, D.C.
At Reliable Tavern, Kapri Robinson elevates the simple Daiquiri template with a quick muddle of fresh blackberries for a kick of flavor and a burst of color. The template works with just about any fresh fruit on hand; try it with other tart berries or even tropical fruits.
1 ounce fresh lime juice
¾ ounce simple syrup (1:1)
2-3 fresh blackberries
2 ounces Bacardi Superior rum
Add lime juice, simple syrup and blackberries to a shaker tin. Muddle berries. Add rum and ice, and shake until the tin is frosty. Double-strain into a chilled coupe.
Order ingredients for this cocktail for delivery via Drizly.
