The classic Daiquiri cocktail is a tropical treat.



2 ounces white rum

1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice

1 bar spoon powdered sugar

Lime round for garnish


  1. Add one scoop of ice, preferably crushed, to a cocktail shaker
  2. Pour in ingredients and add the rounded bar spoon of powdered sugar
  3. Shake for about 30 seconds 
  4. Strain into a coupe glass and add the lime round for garnish


Many people like to enjoy this cocktail as a blended drink. Instead of pouring into a cocktail shaker, just add the same ingredients to a blender, cover and let it go until blended smooth.

If you prefer your Daiquiri blended, feel free to experiment with sweet fruits such as a banana or some strawberries. Keep the base recipe above and just add a few pieces of your chosen fruit to the blender.
