Daiquiri

Scott Phillips

Servings: 1

This is one of the oldest cocktails in existence, a refreshing blend of citrus, rum, and simple syrup. Straightforward and elegant, it’s a far cry from the familiar frozen version. You can buy simple syrup, but it’s easy to make and will keep, covered and refrigerated, for months.

Ingredients

  • 2 fl. oz. (4 Tbs.) white rum, such as Flor de Caña or 10 Cane
  • 3/4 oz. (1-1/2 Tbs.) simple syrup
  • 3/4 oz. (1-1/2 Tbs.) fresh lime or lemon juice
  • Lime or lemon wedge

Preparation

  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rum, simple syrup, and juice. Put the lid on the shaker and make sure it has a good seal.
  • Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosty, 10 to 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass, garnish with the lime wedge, and serve.
  • Note: To make simple syrup, bring equal parts granulated sugar and water to a boil over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and then cool.
