Pro Tip

The Daiquiri is supposed to be fresh, zingy and sharp, the perfect foil to a hot day by the beach. To achieve the cocktail as it should be drank, it is important to use white rum and as the best quality ingredients as you can get your hands on. This means using a premium, high-quality white rum like a Havana 3yo, freshly squeezing your own lime juice, and even using some homemade sugar syrup (which we show you how to make in less than 5 minutes here).

About The Daiquiri

A cocktail that is simple in design, the Daiquiri recipe uses only three main ingredients – white rum, lime juice, and sugar syrup – though there are countless variations on this original recipe. Most variations will include an additional fruit juice base like strawberry, mango, or even pink grapefruit (used in the popular Hemingway Daiquiri variation) to make it more palatable for a casual drinker.

This experimentation then led to the widely popular frozen Daiquiri trend, though most seasoned cocktail bartenders will admit to not appreciating this style of Daiquiri!
