Classic Daiquiri

I love this cocktail! The berries, the fresh lime and the balance between sweet and strong make this Daiquiri so amazing.

  • 50 ml white rum
  • ½ oz. Sugar syrup
  • 25 ml of fresh lime juice
  • 1 slice of lime for garnish
  • At least 2 heaped handfuls of ice ice


  1. Fill your desired cocktail glass with ice (I am using a Martini glass) to chill.
  2. Put your white rum, sugar syrup and fresh lime juice into your shaker. Mix, and then taste test. Once you are satisfied, add a good handful of ice to the shaker then shake hard.
  3. Pour the ice out of your cocktail glass and then strain the daiquiri mixture from the shaker into your chilled glass. Garnish your cocktail with a wedge of lime and serve with the asparagus. Enjoy.

Recipe Notes

  • You can use frozen berries for garnishing your cocktail at the very end. It adds a great fruity appeal to the drink.
