Daiquiri Cocktail

The daiquiri is a classic sour – that is, a family of cocktails made with spirit, sugar and citrus juice – whose simple, straightforward appeal has been obscured for years by frozen, fruity variations. One doesn’t need a blender to make one, just fresh limes, good rum and sugar. The proportions of syrup and juice can be adjusted, depending on whether you prefer a sweeter or more-tart style.
