About the Daiquiri

A fantastically light & refreshing rum number.

This is such a simple drink to make and can be easily adapted to your own taste.

If you want it sweeter, simply add more sugar – why not try it with honey or even your favourite flavoured jam!

Try different types of rum and you will see how they dramatically change the finished drink.

Or if you just want a perfect balance of sweet, sour and rum…then follow this recipe.


Instructions

Get yourself a clean Martini glass

This needs to be chilled, so simply fill it with ice and some water and put to one side

Roll your lime for around 10–15 seconds on a chopping board – this will make it a lot more juicy

Cut this in half and place it into your lime squeezer

Measure out 25ml into your jigger and place into your Boston glass

Then add 2 x barspoons of caster sugar and 50ml Bacardi Superior

Top with equal parts crushed & cubed ice, as we want a little dilution of the ice when shaking

Put the Boston tin on top at a slight angle and hit it firmly, creating a seal

Left hand on the tin, right hand on the bottom of the glass, move your right hand up 45 degrees and SHAKE!!!!

Once the tin is frosted on the outside, then its showtime

Place the Boston tin & tin glass in your left hand, with two fingers on each – the tin should be at the bottom

Then using the palm of your hand, hit the tin where it meets the glass, give it some welly otherwise nothing will happen

Never ever ever do this on a bar top as it’s very dangerous

Hey presto the two will come apart

Get your chilled glass and discard the ice & water, flicking to remove ever last drop – maybe over your mate if they have been bugging you to make this quicker

Put your Hawthorn strainer into the tin and using a fine strainer with the other hand, pour into your Martini glass

Now that is a tasty drink!
