THE DAIQUIRI – a must know rum drink!

The daiquiri follows a simple, yet perfect drink template – rum, sugar, and lime.

Balanced just right, this drink is unforgettable! I’ll be making it two ways – the classic “light” version, and a fuller-flavored “dark” rendition. And because balance in a daiquiri is crucial, I’ll show you how I adjust the ratios ever so slightly to reach that perfect marriage of sweet and tart. There’s no better cocktail to elevate your favorite bottle of rum! Cheers!
