Author Notes: This is the daiquiri unplugged. No frills, just a bracing blend of good white rum, fresh-squeezed lime juice and simple syrup. No fruity masquerade available for poor-quality ingredients, so do it up right.Erika Kotite

Serves 1

  • 2 ounces light (white) rum
  • 1 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • .5 ounces simple syrup
  1. Shake with ice and strain into a martini glass or coupe. Garnish with lime wedge.

I prefer a gold rum, something that's been aged a bit but that isn't too heavy. The secret to a tasty daiquiri, in my opinion, is to shake really vigorously in order to get the tiny flecks of ice that pour into the glass. That way the drink mellows (develops) as you hold it in your hand.
