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.

Daiquiri Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Daiquiri Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
