Classic Lime Daiquiri

Cocktail Recipes

“This is one of the easiest, simplest cocktails you can make and if you have enough of them– well, let’s just say anything could happen.”

Ingredients

A little sugar or coarse sea salt, depending on your preference
Lime wedges
3 ounces Angostura White Oak
1 1/2 ounces Simple Syrup
Juice of 2-3 limes, depending on your preference

Ice

To garnish: lime wedge

Directions

Pour the sugar or salt into a shallow dish.

Run a lime wedge over the rim of your preferred glass and then dip the glass into the sugar or salt, twisting your wrist to ensure even coverage. Gently shake off any excess. Set aside.

Pour the rum, simple syrup, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker or mason jar.

Top with ice.

Cover and shake for 30 seconds.

Pour into the prepared glass.

Garnish with a fresh lime wedge. Cheers!

Tip!

It’s especially important that you use fresh lime juice in this recipe. I usually squeeze a pint-size mason jar’s worth of juice in one go, so I’m set for the evening. This will make about six daiquiris and requires 15 to 18 limes, depending on how juicy they are. To extract more liquid from citrus, roll it on its side for 10 seconds to release the juice!
