Review:

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.
