Cane Run Classic Daiquiri
Just in case you don't know your cocktail history: the first recorded mention of the daiquiri was in the late 19th century, in a Cuban mining settlement with the same name. It didn't really gain widespread attention until the 1940's, when people turned to rum in reaction to wartime rationing creating a whiskey scarcity. Before you know it, a classic cocktail was born.
If you want to mix up the pre-slushy version of a daiquiri, there's no better way than with Cane Run Estate Rum, winner of "#1 Rum in a Classic Daiquiri" at the World Cocktail Championships. Go ahead, drink up!
- 1.5 ounces Cane Run Estate Rum
- 1 ounce fresh lime juice
- 1 ounce superfine sugar
Shake all ingredients together with ice and strain into a chilled glass. (Shake well so the sugar dissolves.) For an added touch, run the lime around the rim of the glass, then sprinkle with extra sugar. Garnish with a slice of lime.
