A classic daiquiri is a cocktail made from rum, lime juice, and sugar. The drink was first mentioned in a magazine in 1867 and was a favorite among American expats in Cuba around the turn of the 20th century.
The ingredients for a classic daiquiri include three parts light rum, two parts lime juice, and one part sugar syrup. These ingredients are shaken with ice cubes to chill the drink before being strained into a glass over ice cubes. The recipe varies slightly depending on who you ask, but all versions are delicious and refreshing. Use fresh lime juice and simple syrup for best results!
