Daiquiris are one of the most popular tropical drinks, and the process of making one to perfection is not too difficult to learn. It starts with the ingredients: a classic daiquiri needs nothing more than white rum, lime juice, and simple syrup. To make a single drink, put 2 ounces of white rum, ¾ of an ounce of fresh lime juice, and an equal amount of simple sugar—a 1:1 mixture of sugar and water boiled down to a syrup—in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Then all you have to do is shake the drink, strain it into a chilled coupe, and serve. For a tropical twist, you can also mix all of the ingredients with fruit in a blender to make frozen fruit daiquiris.
