The classic Daiquiri is a refreshing and tangy cocktail that can be made easily at home. Here’s how you can make a deliciously simple classic Daiquiri:


– 2 oz (60 ml) of white rum

– 3/4 oz (22.5 ml) of freshly squeezed lime juice

– 1/2 oz (15 ml) of simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water dissolved together) or granulated sugar to taste

– Ice cubes


  1. Chill your cocktail glass by placing it in the freezer for a few minutes.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, add the white rum, freshly squeezed lime juice, simple syrup (or sugar), and a handful of ice cubes.
  3. Shake vigorously for about 20 seconds to thoroughly chill the drink and mix the flavors.
  4. Strain the cocktail into the chilled cocktail glass, using a cocktail strainer or the shaker’s built-in strainer.

Note: If you prefer a sweeter Daiquiri, you can adjust the amount of simple syrup or sugar to your taste. You can also experiment with different types of rum, such as aged or flavored varieties.

Optional: To elevate the presentation, garnish your classic Daiquiri with a lime wheel or twist. You can also rim the glass with sugar or salt for an added touch.

Enjoy your home-made classic Daiquiri straight up or over ice, and savor the delightful combination of rum, lime, and sweetness.
