Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Making a classic Daiquiri:


  • 2 oz white rum

  • 3/4 oz simple syrup (1:1 ratio of water to sugar)

  • 3/4 oz fresh lime juice

  • Ice

  • Lime wheel or wedge for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Ingredients:

  • Measure out 2 ounces of white rum, 3/4 ounce of simple syrup, and 3/4 ounce of fresh lime juice.

  1. Fill the Shaker with Ice:

  • Fill a cocktail shaker with a generous amount of ice. This will help chill and properly dilute the ingredients.

  1. Add the Ingredients to the Shaker:

  • Pour the measured white rum, simple syrup, and fresh lime juice into the shaker.

  1. Shake Well:

  • Secure the lid on the shaker and shake the ingredients vigorously for about 10-15 seconds. This helps chill the drink and ensures proper mixing.

  1. Strain Into Glass:

  • Use a strainer to pour the contents of the shaker into a chilled martini or cocktail glass.

  1. Garnish (Optional):

  • Optionally, garnish the drink with a lime wheel or wedge on the rim of the glass.

  1. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Your classic Daiquiri is ready to be enjoyed! The balance of rum, lime, and sweetness makes for a refreshing and timeless cocktail.

Feel free to adjust the ratio of simple syrup to lime juice based on your personal taste preferences. Some people prefer a slightly sweeter or more tart Daiquiri. Experiment with the proportions to find the balance that suits you best. Cheers!
