Daiquiri Day!

It’s National Daiquiri Day!

If you have been smashing Daiquiris at your local beach bar, you are probably used to the popular frozen cocktail mixed with limeades, sweeteners, and other mixers. A refreshing cocktail, packed with sugar that is NOT a true Daiquiri. The Classic Daiquiri is actually a simple rum-based cocktail that has been altered in so many ways over the past years that most people don’t even know what the true recipe actually contains – rum, fresh lime juice, and simple syrup.

Since the Daiquiri has such a simple foundation, it lends itself well to fresh fruits, spices, and other flavorful ingredients. You can also use many different kinds of rums and ratios. Here are a few rums favorited amongst top bartenders: Plantation Three Star, Cana Brava, and Casa Magdalena.

To stay true to the Daiquiri and enjoy the holiday properly, enjoy this simple recipe:


  • 1 ½ oz. white rum
  • ½ oz. simple syrup
  • 1 oz. lime juice

Directions: Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake well. Strain into a well-chilled glass.
