In its simplest form, a daiquiri is a perfectly balanced ration of rum, lime juice, and simple syrup, shaken with ice and served up. This traditional version is a far superior — and far removed — relative of the familiar super-sugary, from-concentrate frozen concoction that has a barely-there alcohol content.
Try this for a classy, classic version of this well known but poorly represented beverage.
- 2 Ounces dark rum
- 1 Ounce fresh lime juice
- 1 Ounce simple syrup
Add all the ingredients to a shaker and fill with ice. Shake, and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
