Cocktail Corner: Classic Daiquiri
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.
