National Daiquiri Day
Posted Jul 19, 2017
Happy National Daiquiri Day from Canada’s East Coast! We appreciate an original here on Nova Scotia’s Authentic Seacoast and there is no rum cocktail more traditional than the classic daiquiri. Even better, with only three ingredients, it is an exercise in simplicity.
As with all simple recipes, it’s all about the quality of your ingredients. The smooth, full flavour of our Sea Fever Amber Rum is a nice start. Next up, fresh juicy limes. No lime concentrate in a plastic squeeze lime or bottled juice here. Find the best limes you can and juice them by hand. And to finish, sugar. That’s it. Easy right?
Now to put it all together. Stir your lime juice and sugar together in a cocktail shaker to dissolve the sugar. Then add your rum and ice. Shake hard and strain into a glass. Garnish with a slice of fresh lime or a twist of lime if you really want to impress your friends.
Here are your proportions:
2 ounces Sea Fever Amber Rum
¾ ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
The classic daiquiri. Pure old school goodness. We thank you for toasting tradition with us.
