Review:

Made to the easy-to-remember 3:2:1 Daiquiri "countdown" formula (3 parts rum, 2 parts lime & 1 part sugar), this balanced and limey daiquiri suits a more characterful light rum.

History:

I'm indebted to Roger Vilalta who in 2010 at Banker's Bar in Barcelona, Spain made yours truly an excellent daiquiri using this formula.
