The traditional daiquiri, not the wussy fruit drink.

  • 2 cups crushed ice, plus extra for chilling glass
  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 1-ounce freshly squeezed lime juice, strained of pulp
  • 1/2-ounce Simple Syrup, recipe follows

Put the ice into a cocktail shaker. Pour the syrup, juice and rum over the ice. Cover and shake well. Strain the drink into your service glass and drink immediately.
