Recipe Testers' Reviews
The current state of bartending having degraded to a point where we see entire menus of so-called martinis — none of which have any of the ingredients of a martini — it is refreshing to come across this recipe for a daiquiri, steadfast in its purity. I have to admit a great sympathy for the author and his frustration at trying to get a properly made drink. Anyway, this recipe produces a daiquiri, just like it’s supposed to be. Simple.
A perfect, refreshing cocktail. Nothing like the overly sweet, amusement-park type of drinks this name usually implies. Since I don’t usually drink cocktails (I’m more of a wine gal), I don’t have a cocktail shaker. I used two pint glasses instead, filling one with ice and ingredients, and pouring it back and forth between the two glasses several times until I thought it was mixed well enough.
