I love rum cocktails (especially rum punches), but sometimes I’m looking for something a little lighter during those warm summer months. This recipe is a classic version, although over time, daiquiris have sort of become an umbrella (like martinis or margaritas), and as a result there are tons of daiquiri recipes.
This cocktail is light, refreshing, and easy to make. Watch out, though! These drinks go down easy. This drink is meant to be served neat (meaning without ice) and should yield 3 ounces per drink. I’ve been researching cocktails a lot recently and have been learning about “short” drinks like this daiquiri.
This delicious rum cocktail will transport you to Cuba – where the daiquiri originated from. Plus, did you know that Ernest Hemingway loved daiquiris? Honestly, I think I would have gotten along with Ernest – he was also a fan of martinis. In fact, I had the author’s famous martini at the Hemingway Bar in Paris a few years ago. It was such a wonderful experience! You have to wait in line to get in, but they have the world’s best sliders and mini hot dogs!
