The Daiquiri

Happy Friday! Start the weekend off right with a daiquiri. No blender needed for this perfect cocktail. Created in 1898 by an American engineer working at the Daiquiri copper mines near Santiago de Cuba, this drink will knock you silly and make you ask for another immediately after you come to. Plenty of rum, and not much else! Enjoy!

3 parts Bacardi
1 part fresh lime juice
1 part simple syrup (equal parts water & sugar combined until sugar is dissolved)
