How to make:
Cut zest from your lime prior to squeezing for juice. SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
|1 2⁄3 fl oz||Bacardi Carta Blanca light rum|
|1⁄2 fl oz||Freshly squeezed lime juice|

|4 drop||Difford's Daiquiri Bitters (optional)|
|1⁄3 fl oz||Chilled water (omit if using wet ice)|

Crisp, light and refreshing. Delicately simple yet with perfectly balanced complexity of flavours. Grind white caster sugar in a mortar and pestle to make powdered sugar, or use 10ml (1/3oz) sugar syrup (2 parts sugar to 1 part water) in place of the 2 spoons powdered sugar.
My (Simon Difford) own tried and tested rum-heavy 10 parts rum to 3 parts lime to 2 parts sugar formula. This is my go-to recipe to make a straight-up "Natural" Daquiri with a dry light white rum.
