Summer is here, and that means it is time for a Daiquiri. The daiquiri is an adult drink. It's a drinkers drink. Ordering a mojito automatically makes me judge you a little. Ordering a daiquiri makes me respect you a lot. I mean, Hemingway drank daiquiris. Need I continue?
The best part about the daiquiri is that it is not fancy, not difficult to make, and yet so easy to drink.
1.5 oz white rum
3/4 oz simple syrup or a level tablespoon of sugar
1/2 oz of lime juice (which is often about the juice of a half a lime)
Combine in a mixing tin and shake the hell out of it.
Serve straight up.
Sit back and sip with care. These things go down so easily, you could be lounging next to the pool in the porcelain in no time.
