A classic daiquiri is made of rum, freshly squeezed lime juice and simple syrup. It’s a refreshing, sweet-tart drink.
1 ½ ounces rum
¾ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
¼ ounce simple syrup
twist of lime peel*
Pour the rum, lime juice, and simple syrup in a shaker filled with 4 or five ice cubes.
Shake, strain into a martini glass.
Add a twist of lime peel, if desired.
*It’s easier to peel the lime before juicing. Only take the very thin outer peel and not the pith.
