On the Rocks: La Floridita Daiquiri.

I learned a lot about daiquiris from the post on this recipe for the La Floridita Daiquiri. Authentic daiquiris are not those neon-hued frozen concoction you find running rampant at resorts. In fact, they don’t even have to be frozen! All of which is a huge relief to me because I’ve never been a fan, but now I can say my opinion has done a 180º.

– 2 oz Cuban light rum*
– juice of half a lime
– 1 tsp maraschino liqueur
– 1 tsp sugar or simple syrup

Blend just until mixed with three-to-four cubes worth of crushed ice. Pour into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry. Or, for an unfrozen option, shake vigorously over ice until well chilled.

*For those of us who don’t have or have access to procure contraband Havana Club, Puerto Rican or Dominican light rum (like Brugal) is an acceptable substitute.

    Very interesting! I’ve never been a huge fan of frozen daiquiris either, but might have to try these.
