Comment:

Made to the easy-to-remember 3:2:1 Daiquiri (or countdown) formula (45ml rum, 30ml lime & 15ml sugar syrup (2:1), this balanced but limey daiquiri lacks the poise of my preferred 10:3:2 formula.

About:

I'm indebted to Roger Vilalta who in 2010 at Banker's Bar in Barcelona, Spain made me (Simon Difford) an excellent daiquiri using this formula.
