    Fresh Strawberry Daiquiri

    A traditional Daiquiri with a kiss of spring.

    • 2 sliced strawberries (optional)
    • 1/2 ounce orange liqueur (optional)
    • 1 1/2 ounces white rum
    • 1 bar spoon super fine sugar
    • Juice of 1/2 a pressed lime
    • Whole strawberry (for garnish)

    RIM INGREDIENTS

    • 4 bar spoons super fine sugar
    • Lime wedge

    to rim the glass: Measure sugar onto a small plate. Rim the outside top of glass with the lime wedge. Roll the outside lip of the glass in sugar. Set aside.

    RIM INGREDIENTS

    In mixing glass, muddle strawberry slices and orange liqueur, if using. Add rum, sugar, and lime. Add ice to tin. Shake well. Strain into sugar-rimmed glass. Garnish with a strawberry.

    The Daiquiri’s main ingredients are rum, lime juice, and sugar. Jennings Cox, an American mining engineer working in Cuba for the Spanish American Iron Company, invented this drink in 1905 at the Venus Bar in Santiago, Cuba. It was a favorite of John F. Kennedy and Ernest Hemingway, who popularized the Daiquiri in the United States.
