The name "daiquiri" has been wrongfully appropriated by sugary-sweet, brightly-colored beach drinks. While those are fun for novelty's sake, they're nothing close to the original.
A simple combination of rum, lime juice, and sugar ... the addition of our Demerara Syrupadds depth and richness to the flavor while complimenting the sugarcane flavors of a good rum.
Variation of the Century: Try it with Plantation Stiggins' Fancy Pineapple Rum, a rich and delicious infused spirit of recent origin. It's not always easy to find, but this is the perfect 3-ingredient drink for outdoor summer entertaining.
2 oz. Rum - [Experiment to find your favorite for this recipe.]
1 oz. Fresh-Squeezed Lime Juice
.5 oz. Eli Mason Demerara Syrup
Lime for Garnish
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously to chill and strain into a chilled glass. Garnish with a strip of lime zest.
