This spiced daiquiri cocktail is inspired by the intense flavours of Arabia and is created using OPIHR's Arabian Edition. This Edition of gin uses the ingredients found in traditional Arabian cuisine, including black Persian lemons. 

These lemons are not actually lemons at all, but rather sun-dried limes, which are used to add a unique tangy and earthy flavour to Middle Eastern chutneys and stews. Black lemons play a central part in Persian cooking thanks to their sweet citrus flavour and a lack of bitterness that other lemons bring. 

To create OPIHR's Arabian Edition gin, these black lemons and timut peppers are blended together to create a richly intense citrus and spice-led gin with strong lemon notes. 

While you’re planning your Middle Eastern getaway, why not enjoy a taste of Arabia with OPIHR’s spiced daquiri?
