Coupe glass


Lime wedge on rim

How to make:

SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.

For an even better Daiquiri use 2 x 5ml measuring spoons of powdered sugar (finely ground caster sugar) in place of 10ml sugar syrup. Stir sugar with other ingredients in base of shaker prior to adding ice and shaking to ensure fully dissolved.

2 fl oz Bacardi Gold rum
2/3 fl oz Lime juice (freshly squeezed)
1/3 fl oz Giffard Sugar Cane Syrup

This 6:2:1 (6 parts rum, 2 parts lime and 1 part sugar) Daiquiri recipe emerged after an afternoon's Daiquiri experimentation with five of the UK's most respected bartenders back in 2010. It is a touch more citrus-forward so suits a fuller flavoured rum than my (Simon Difford's) own 10:3:2 Daiquiri formula which calls for a charcoal-filtered lightly aged rum.
