Join Alex to learn how to make delicious daiquiris out of three ingredients and the most basic of bar equipment.

You will need the following:

Ingredients - white rum, limes, sugar syrup and ice cubes.

You can use gin if you prefer - this makes a gimlet rather than a daiquiri.

For a fruity daiquiri, use some sort of soft fruit that you like: raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, pineapple are all fine and they can be fresh or defrosted from frozen or canned.

For a mojito you need granulated demerara sugar (or similar) and fresh mint leaves (available at the supermarket) and soda water or fizzy bottled water.

Limes: fresh is better. You will need half a lime for each drink.

Sugar syrup: you can make sugar syrup by putting 200 grams of sugar in 200 mls of water in a saucepan and heating it very gently until the sugar is dissolved. You can keep the syrup in the fridge for a few weeks.  Or you can buy ready made gomme syrup online, for example at Amazon: https://amzn.to/3ktNeZD

Equipment - a cocktail shaker with a strainer OR a large, empty, clean jam jar and a tea-strainer

  • Something to measure liquid with - a jigger or measuring spoon
  • A glass - a 'coupe' is traditional, but a wine glass will do
  • Something to squeeze limes - a juicer, a squeezer like a Mexican elbow or your bare hands will do
  • You will need ice - freeze cubes yourself or buy a bag of ice form the supermarket or petrol station
  • Optional extra: a blender like a nutri-bullet lets you make frozen (blended) daiquiris.

The ingredients make traditional, strong cocktails, so you might want to have lemonade or ginger beer to hand to dilute them a bit, if you prefer.
