And better yet, it can be made with the staples you have lying your cupboard...
Good news: you don’t need to travel to a tropical island or for it to even be sunny outside to sip on a delicious daiquiri this summer. Sure you can buy a pre-made frozen daiquiri from the supermarket or you can even call up your favourite bar and have one delivered to your door but the best way to enjoy this refreshing tipple? From your very own bar cart.
And don't panic if you're still yet to master your baking and/or cooking skills because this cocktail is as easy to make as it is to drink. All it takes is three ingredients: rum, lime and a fruit of your choosing.
While strawberries are the popular choice for a daiquiri, we tend to favour a citrusy spin...like this orange marmalade daiquiri for example. Sweet and sour with a hint of bitterness from the marmalade and a hint of vanilla from the spiced rum, this is the ultimate crowd-pleaser.
Orange marmalade daiquiri
- 50ml spiced or light rum
- 35ml orange marmalade syrup
- 30ml lime juice
1. Put your martini glass in the freezer then dilute the marmalade with a small dash of hot water (10ml should suffice) and let it cool for a few minutes.
2. Add all the ingredients to the shaker ( or a large jar with a lid) and taste with a straw to see if the drink is balanced. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds or so.
3. Get the martini glass out of the freezer and, using a strainer or with the lid of the jar, pour all the drink into the glass trying not to let the shards of ice falling in. Garnish with a wedge of orange
