Daiquiri is similar to Martini and just like Martini, there are several variations by adding different fruits and herbs.  But the main ingredients, rum, lime and sweetener are the same for all Daiquiri drinks.   The classic Daiquiri is very simple to make by using the main ingredients and has a sweet, sour and citrus flavor. 





  • 2 ounce of dark rum
  • 1 ounce of simple syrup
  • 1 ounce of lime juice

How to make classic Daiquiri cocktail:

Pour all the ingredients into a shaker full of ice.  Shake well and strain into a martini glass (preferably chilled).  You can garnish it with lime or lime wheel.   Depending on your personal taste, you can make your drinker sweeter by adding more syrup or if it’s tart, you can add more lime juice.
