45ml White Rum
30ml Simple syrup
20ml St Andrews Limes Lime Juice
Thin slice of Lime for garnish
Combine the rum, syrup and lime juice in a mixing glass/shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a cocktail glass and serve up, with the lime slice as garnish.
The Daiquiri was invented in Cuba in 1898 by two men, Harry Stout and Jennings Cox, in a small village named Daiquiri near Santiago. (even though, for all intents and purposes, grog is a Daiquiri without ice. So the Daiquiri invention can hardly be considered wheel like.)
The Daiquiri has long been one of Americas favourite cocktails, especially in warmer weather, when the lime-rum combination is a great quencher. Unlike the Mojito the Daiquiri isn't thinned with soda water or anything else, and the water in the simple syrup and the lime juice do a remarkable job of hiding the alcohol content of the drink. Take it slow with Daiquiris because they can sneak up on you.
