The word daiquiri makes me think of a sticky sweet blended cocktail (although Megan and her mom do have a fabulous daiquiri recipe they make). But when I was home visiting my parents a few months ago, my dad whipped up a batch of fresh lime daiquiris and they were so good and so refreshing my view of daiquiris has changed for the better! The best part is his recipe only has 3 ingredients and doesn't take any longer than 3 minutes to make. Since then I've been making large pitchers to quench my thirst!
And as long as we're on the topic of limes, is anyone going to make a key lime pie this month?!
Fresh Lime Daiquiri
for 1 cocktail:
1 1/2 oz. light rum
3/4 oz. lime juice
1/4 oz. simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water)
for a few cocktails:
1 1/2 cups light rum
3/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup simple syrup
1. Pour the light rum, lime juice and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes
2. Shake shake (make sure you have good music on)
3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass
And because it's been awhile, here's a Graham photo update. I can't believe he's almost 7 months old!
