Woefully misunderstood, a true daiquiri is simple and pure
The classic daiquiri has been around for over a hundred years but in recent times, it has become the unfortunate victim of mass commercialization. Today, you're more likely to find the daiquiri in a pre-mixed bottle or a slushy machine at a spring break beach bar, than you are to find it on a cocktail feature list. This is a shame, because in its purest form the daiquiri is a simple and delicate balance between sweet and fresh and absolutely deserves a place at the bar.
2 oz. light rum
¾ oz. fresh lime juic
¾ oz. simple syrup or demerara syrup
Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice, and shake until well-chilled.
Strain into a chilled coupe glass.
Garnish with a lime twist.
