Cocktail Corner: Classic Daiquiri

Classic Daiquiri.jpg

The Classic Daiquiri is simple: rum, lime juice and simple syrup.  Don't get this beauty confused with what you usually find placed before you when you order a daiquiri at most restaurants.  What you will usually find is an ultra-sweet, over-complicated variation, but here at The Kitchen we like to keep things simple.

1 1/2 oz. Light rum

1 oz. Fresh lime juice

1/2 oz. or To Taste House simple syrup (recipe to follow)

House Simple Syrup

1 Part Sugar

1 Part Water

Bring ingredients to a boil and turn off heat.  Add fruit/herbs/veggies to infuse if desired.  Keep refrigerated.
