The Daiquri is a classic cocktail which may come as a surprise to many, who have enjoyed the frozen blender variety. This cocktail was made famous at the El Floridita restaurant in Havana, Cuba early in the 20th century (Hemingway always ordered doubles at El Floridita).
This is a very smooth cocktail. A nice balance between sharp and sweet. Once you find the perfect balance of light rum, sharp citrus juice and simple syrup then you want to stick to those measurements.
Last week when the harvest moon was huge in the sky this would have been a beautiful pairing enjoyed side by side with Mother Nature.
Turn on the music, invite a few friends, and shake-up a few of these cocktails. The world will be a better place for it.
