Master of Cocktails – The Daiquiri

Master of Cocktails Daiquiri

In this week’s #MasterofCocktails we’re making what is probably the most abused drink in the history of all time: The Daiquiri.

It’s such a blisteringly simple drink when done correctly. Rum. Sugar. Lime. That’s all.

The recipe really couldn’t be simpler. Can you remember the following?
