A perfect Daiquiri is a deft balance of sweet rum and sour lime juice. It sounds simple but it takes practice.
- 1 lime
- 2 ounce light rum
- ½ ounce simple syrup
- lime slices as garnish
Using your fingers squeeze about 1 oz lime juice directly into a shaker half-filled with ice cubes. Add the rum and simple syrup. Cover and shake vigorously, strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lime slice.
