Here is my favorite hot weather drink–The daiquiri. Simple, elegant, refreshing. I’ve tested daiquiri recipes for years, and this one is the best. From Beachbum Barry’s wonderful book Potions of the Caribbean.
¾ oz fresh squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
2 oz silver rum
Shake well, pour into chilled cocktail glass. As the author points out, sugar (not sugar syrup) give a crisp, better taste.
