If you want an authentic daiquiri, take some advice from daiquiri connoisseur Ernest Hemingway in his novel Islands in the Stream: “This frozen daiquiri, so well beaten as it is, looks like the sea where the wave falls away from the bow of a ship when she is doing thirty knots.” This daiquiri is the real deal. No artificial sweeteners. No Red40. No blended ice. Drink up!
- 2 oz. white rum
- ¾ oz. organic lime juice
- ¾ oz. simple syrup
- Lime wheel
- Fill a cocktail shaker or metal cup (with some sort of lid or a glass that fits tightly inside the metal cup) with ice.
- Add all the ingredients, except for the lime wheel.
- Shake vigorously until the ingredients are well combined and chilled, so for about 20-30 seconds (Make Hemingway proud!).
- Strain into a cocktail glass.
- Garnish with the lime wheel and get hammered.
