I don't think I saw any mention on here for the daiquiri simple syrup lime juice rum mix, serve on the rocks in a old-fashioned glass. you can sugar the rim of the glass if you like It only suffers from association with the garbage mixed drinks. Which, come to mention it, so does a real margarita, which is a great drink when served in the legit manner.
Agreed, on all counts. I also enjoy a good, crisp daiquiri, and subsequent variations, one of which is the Cuban Cocktail: 2 oz Light Rum (I prefer darker rum, like Babancourt) - 1/2 oz Lime Juice - 1/2 oz Lemon Juice - 1/2 Superfine Sugar Shake all the ingredients in a shaker with ice and strain into a cocktail glass (or just serve otr). Garnish with a lemon twist. Crisp, clean & tasty.
