  • Sugar, rum, lime: the perfect, simple daiquiri


Daiquiri


2 oz. light rum

3/4 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice

3/4 oz. 1:1 simple syrup

Shake hard with ice and fine strain into coupe.


Mojito


2 oz. light rum

3/4 lime

3/4 oz. 1:1 simple syrup

5-6 mint leaves

Shake hard with ice and fine strain into a Collins glass that had been prepped with new ice and about an inch of soda water. Add the ice soda to the glass before you strain in the cocktail. This will insure that the soda is integrated into the whole drink.

Old Cuban

(A more sophisticated version of the mojito)

2 oz. aged rum (Don Q Anejo)

3/4 lime

3/4 oz. 1:1 simple syrup

Two dashes of Angostura bitters

5-6 mint leaves

Shake hard with ice and strain into a coup. Top with a dry sparkling wine and garnish with a mint sprig.
