A Daiquiri mixed and ready to drink.


  • 1/3 simple syrup
  • 1/2 fresh lime juice
  • 1 house white rum
  • lime cartwheel (garnish)

Method: Shake

  1. Scoop a mixing glass 3/4 full with ice.
  2. Add all ingredients except the garnish.
  3. Cover with shaker cap and shake well.
  4. Strain into a chilled martini glass.
  5. Garnish with a lime cartwheel.

Mixology Notes:

Shown served in an elegant coupe instead of a martini glass, the Daiquiri is a perennial favorite. It’s deceptively simple, yet hard to perfect. When well made it is balanced between alcohol, tart and sweet. Use only freshly squeezed lime juice and a premium rum for best results.
