How to make a Daiquiri cocktail

5
Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
The Daiquiri is a classic cocktail from Cuba. Can be served straight up (in a martini glass), on the rocks (in a short glass over ice), or frozen (put in a blender with ice and whizzed to a slush).
What you'll need: 
4 Lime Wedges
2tsp white sugar
50ml Rum
Cocktail Shaker
Ice
Martini Glass (for straight up)
1: 
Add ice and water to the martini glass to chill it.
2: 
Add the limes, sugar and rum to the cocktail shaker. Top up with ice.
3: 
Shake the shaker until there is condensation on the outside of the tin.
4: 
Discard the water and ice from the martini glass.
5: 
Strain the contents of the shaker into the martini glass.
Tips: 
You can choose to garnish this cocktail however you like. A lime wheel or a zest spiral work well.
