Growing up in Southeast Louisiana, I thought that daiquiris were frozen concoctions that only came out of machines and were often purchased at a drive-thru. My first classic daiquiri experience did not occur until I was well into my 20’s. If you have yet to experience the tart refreshment that is a classic daiquiri, there is no better time than the present.
(Yes, drive-thru daiquiris. Common in Louisiana, these are small buildings that sell frozen daiquiris via drive-thru. No, you cannot drink while driving!)
Hibiscus Rosehip Daiquiri
Hibiscus Rosehip Simple Syrup and fresh lime juice taste as if they should always be paired together. A good smooth silver rum serves as the perfect base for this cocktail served straight-up. No blenders are used in the making of this drink!
2 oz Silver Rum
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
1/2 oz Social Mixers Hibiscus Rosehip Syrup
In a cocktail shaker, combine rum, lime juice, and syrup.
Add ice and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
Double strain into a coupe glass.
- Garnish with lime wheel.
