Cocktail Recipe: Daiquiri
Dating back to the late 1800s or early 1900s, the Daiquiri is a timeless cocktail that has its origins in Cuba. Its name was derived from a beach near Santiago de Cuba where the cocktail is believed to have been first created. The classic recipe of Daiquiri initially comprised only three ingredients – white rum, lime juice, and sugar.
The classic Daiquiri is a simple yet sophisticated cocktail perfect for any occasion. The combination of white rum, fresh lime juice, and simple syrup creates a delicate balance of sweet and sour flavors perfectly complemented by the refreshing citrus notes of the lime wedge garnish. The use of a cocktail shaker ensures that the ingredients are thoroughly combined and chilled, resulting in a smooth and velvety texture that is both satisfying and refreshing.
