Ingredients (3)

  • 3 ounces light rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon simple syrup or superfine sugar

The original daiquiri recipe was a mixture of rum, lime, and sugar, served over ice. Constantino Ribalagua, the famed bartender at Havana’s La Floridita—nicknamed La Catedral del Daiquiri—blended the drink with shaved ice, thereby creating the frozen Daiquiri.


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender with 1/2 cup cracked ice. Blend until frothy, and serve in a large cocktail glass.
