Apparently yesterday was National Daiquiri Day. Yes, there is such a thing. A daiquiri is one of those classic cocktails that is ideal for the summer, and it's simple as hell -- fresh lime juice, white rum, and either superfine sugar or simple syrup. I'm actually fortunate enough to have a nice selection of white rums around the house at the moment, including Flor de Cana, Plantation 3 Stars White Rum, and Brugal Extra Dry, so perhaps I'll make a mini daiquiri flight with each to see which I prefer.
2 ounces white rum
juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 tsp of superfine sugar or 1 tsp simple syrup
Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Sip & enjoy, preferably at the beach.
