Orange Daiquiri

citrus & rum

hemingway popularized the addition of grapefruit to the classic summer cocktail, but i stand by the lime & orange variation here. something about drinking a daiquiri on a hot summer day really transports you to Florida circa 1950. add or subtract sugar based on personal preference!

for the drink

1.5 oz (one shot) white rum

1 oz lime juice

1 oz orange juice

1/2 tsp. sugar or other sweetener

to be “traditional”: fill up a glass with ice, then top with a sprinkle of sugar. pour over the citrus juice then the rum and stir before enjoying

to be practical: shake all the ingredients together with ice and strain into your prettiest glass. enjoy!
