Classic daiquiri

Classic daiquiri

Daiquiri is a typical Cuban drink. Its consumption has spread to the US, to all Central America and then, to the rest of the world. Its classic version is with lemon but it can be made with strawberries, peaches, mango, pineapple or red fruits. It’s a very versatile and summery drink. Surely you already know it but if you have never tried it yet, you should. Let’s go for it!


– 1 Measure and a half of white rum

– 1 Measure of squeezed lemon (or lime)

– 2 Tablespoons of sugar

– Crushed ice


– Place all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker

– Shake vigorously to mix everything and let the ice cool the drink. Another alternative is to make it frozen, putting the rum, lemon and sugar in a blender and doubling the volume with ice.

– Decorate the glass with lemon.

– Serve and enjoy!

The ideal instead of sugar is that you have made syrup for your drinks. The syrup is made with two parts of sugar and one of water, over heat until the sugar dissolves. To use it, it must of course be refrigerated.
