Tomorrow is National Daiquiri Day. That’s silly, of course. But what’s not silly are Daiquiris themselves. In fact, they’re more than a little awesome.
The original Daiquiri was made with Bacardi Superior (white) rum. That’s still a good place to start. (Although I prefer some of their other rums more.)
Daiquiris are very easy to make, so it’s a great cocktail to try at home. (And you have a much better chance of getting a good one that way than at your local dive bar.) Just remember to use fresh-squeezed lime juice and your favorite rum.
Here’s a simple Daiquiri recipe.
