After a hiatus we arrive at the Daiquiri. For the rum I have diluted some Brugal 151. This may have been a bad idea. We'll see....
Here's the recipe:
juice of 1/2 a lime
1/2 tsp sugar
1.5oz light rum
shake with fine ice
I ended up with a little more than 0.5oz of juice from the lime. I shook with regular ice, not fine. The last "ingredient" is an interesting one and the only one of it's kind on the shaker. I suppose the makers of this needed to add something. It's such a simple recipe and has no garnish they decided to fill the fifth cell with "cocktail glass." What would you have done?
Man, is this sour! Yum!
My diluted Brugal 151 ended up being about 50%Alc/Vol. and was much more palatable straight than the Bacardi had been. (Let's say that that was a bad bottle and leave it at that). So it turns out that there's light rum in the house after all. There are also possibilities for Daiquiri experimentation as the LCBO is now listing Maraschino...
