A proper daiquiri is not Technicolor strawberry red, nor does a proper daiquiri have the texture of a Slurpee. A proper daiquiri is made with good light rum, a little lime juice, even littler simple syrup, and ice, and it is a cocktail of straight-up summertime greatness. Robert Hess, aka www.drinkboy.com, correctly admonishes: “Never, ever, use Rose’s lime juice in this drink.” The daiquiri is named after a beach in Cuba, which you may think about while you drink one. (Rob Roy, Liberty, Il Bistro, or any other good cocktail lounge, or at home; now—why not?)
