Don't Forget The Daiquiri
There is probably no other cocktail that I can think of off of the top of my head that is as refreshingly tasty as the daiquiri, yet is almost NEVER made correctly.
Odds are that if you were to order one anywhere outside of a mixology bar, you wouldn't get anything that even resembles a classic daiquiri.
Most likely, you would probably get a watered-down, blended monstrosity that was overloaded with chemically-enhanced sweet & sour, some sort of lime cordial and bad rum.
Unfortunately, it looks like the once-proud legacy of the classic daiquiri is definitely in need of a little help.
It is such a simple cocktail that it is almost silly to have to reprint the recipe, but alas drastic times call for drastic measures.
2oz Light Rum
.75oz Fresh Lime Juice
.5oz Organic Cane Syrup
Combine Rum, Simple Syrup and Lime juice into shaker tin.
Shake vigorously and double-strain into chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with a lime twist and enjoy.
