Daiquiri

Here is a recipe for the most basic of daiquiris.

A Simple Daiquiri

1 1/2 oz. Light Rum
1/2 oz. Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
1 tsp. Simple Syrup (Dissolve a sugar cube in 1 Tsp hot water then let it cool)
4 large Ice Cubes
Slice of Lime for Garnish

Combine the first three ingredients into a metal shaker with ice.
Shake until the metal shaker chills.
Strain into a chilled  glass.
Garnish with the lime slice

This simple yet elegant cocktail originated in Cuba in the 1800s.  It was popularized in North America by tourists who traveled to Cuba especially during prohibition.  Many forms of the daiquiri exist today and it is considered one of the quintessential rum cocktails.
