Comment:

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.

About:

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.
