The daddy of all rum cocktails and the ultimate thirst-quenching sour for those sunny days by the beach or those not-so-sunny days when you wish you were by a beach. 

There’s a couple of different ways to serve a Daiquiri too, classically, it would be served straight-up in a Martini glass or coupe, but one of the most famous spins on the drink is, of course, the frozen Daiquiri, this is a simple matter of either making the drink in a blender or serving it over crushed ice, either using the original recipe or with fruit and additions of your choosing. Here’s how to make the original, as well as a few twists for you to try.

Take your Boston glass or small tin and, using your jigger to measure, add the Lost Years Four Islands Rum, sugar syrup, and 25ml of lime juice and add it to the shaker.

Fill your shaker with cubed ice and seal using your Boston tin or lid, before shaking vigorously for 10-15 seconds or until your tin is very cold.

History

The Daiquiri is the classic rum cocktail, a beautifully simple sour that was reportedly created by an American engineer named Jennings Cox while working at a mine in Cuba of the same name. 

The drink consists of a balanced mixture of rum, lime juice and sugar, a trio of ingredients all grown and produced in close proximity to each other, and all of whom make natural bedfellows. So whilst Mr Cox may have coined the name for this drink, it’s more than likely that someone probably put these three things together before him. 

Either way, the Daiquiri is a delicious and refreshing cocktail, its bold simplicity means that it works well with any kind of rum, each different brand and variety bringing a new character to the drink. Not only can you play with it by changing the rum you use, but the Daiquiri also makes a great starting point for a whole slew of other rum-based cocktails.
