You really need a complex white rum for this cocktail.  Plantation 3 Star is a combination of 3 different rums from 3 different islands, all aged to some degree.  It works very well.  There are not a lot of other white rums in its league, though perhaps Banks 5 Island rum.  If you only have something like Bacardi, sub in 1/4 oz of Batavia Arrack.

On the palate this Hemingway Daiquiri variation from Jim Meehan at PDT is a citrusy cocktail with other layers of funk and the irresistible nutty bitterness from the Maraska cherry pits used to make Maraschino. 

Go easy on the shake...you have a full 1.5 oz of juice here so unlike a boozier cocktail you can wet this one out in the shaker rather quickly especially in warm weather.
