Shaken Cocktails- Daiquiri

20 Dec

Moving house has meant I haven’t had a chance to use all the Shaken Cocktails/ Cocktails by Post kits I’ve received but when the latest one popped through our letterbox we wasted no time in trying it.

Daiquiris are often on a menu as something frozen, sweet, artificial and out of a packet so I have long avoided them. But this one promises rum with fresh ingredients so we took no convincing to try it.

The recipe, from Trailer Happiness, (and as always a lot more detailed and descriptive in the kit) is:

  • Juice of a lime
  • 2 level teaspoons of caster sugar (stirred into the lime)
  • 50ml white rum

All shaken over plenty of ice

The end result- amazing! It was fresh and flavourful with a real rum kick and the balance of sweet and sour was perfect. This is a drink I know I’ll return to again and again now I have tasted it in its purest form (and writing this weeks later this has now become a go-to drink when anyone comes over and it proves endlessly popular) For a drink that is so simple to make it has a taste that belies that and will keep you coming back for more. I can’t wait to try it with a dark rum and see the difference.
