Classic Daiguiri at

When I was young, a Daiquiri was rum, lime juice and sugar. Somehow, they have turned into a frozen Slurpee like concoction that is more like a dessert than a refreshing beverage. My friend invited me over and we returned to a simpler time.

The recipe for the cocktail is at the end of the post.

I juiced a lime. I put the lime juice and sugar in my cocktail shaker and stirred until the sugar was dissolved.  Add 1/2 shaker of ice and the rum.


Shake the rum until the shaker is cold and frosted. Strain the drinks into a small highball glass and garnish with a lime slice.

The Verdict

These were way better than the frozen version. They were tart with just enough sugar to make it nice. The rum adds a crisp sweetness as well. If you want an adult drink that is refreshing, forget the Slurpees and make this.

I have done a video on how to make this drink.
