When you hear “daiquiri,” a super sweet, fruity, blended concoction in a martini glass may come to mind. Though a $14 daiquiri may tempt you as temperatures rise, replicating a restaurant-quality daiquiri at home may be easier than you think.
If you have white rum, lime juice and simple syrup, all you need to remember is the Bartender’s Golden Ratio of 2:1:1 – two parts alcohol, one part sweet, one part sour – and you have a delicious daiquiri.
An essential addition to the hobbyist bartender’s repertoire, a well-made, classic daiquiri fits well into any summer-themed party.
