July 19 is National Daiquiri Day. And what better way to celebrate such a fantastically themed day than with a cool and refreshing Daiquiri?
Rumour has it that this classic cocktail was invented in Cuba by a pair of Americans circa 1898. It continues to be one of the most popular summer thirst quenchers around and its easy preparation makes it a great choice for those who like to keep things simple. So crack a bottle of rum, squeeze a few limes and enjoy a classic Daiquiri in honour of National Daiquiri Day.
1-1/2 oz white rum
1 oz simple syrup
3/4 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
Lime wheel for garnish
Pour rum, simple syrup and lime juice into a shaker with plenty of ice and shake hard. Strain into a chilled cocktail galss and garnish with a lime wheel.
