Classic Daiquiri

For Friday Happy Hour this week we thought we’d make a Classic Daiquiri and post the recipe. Earlier this week, we received a bottle of Banks 5 Island Rum and thought we’d put it to the test in this recipe – the resulting cocktail was tasty!

Classic Daiquiri
(makes one)

2 ounces light rum
1 oz fresh lime juice
.5 oz. simple syrup

Gently shake all ingredients over ice, strain into a glass and garnish with lime. The traditional Daiquiri is slightly tart, so if you like a sweeter drink, increase the amount of simple syrup added.
