Why not add this classic daiquiri recipe to your repertoire? It’s so easy to make, reminiscent of the margarita and mojito with its tart flavor. Here’s how to make this easy-to-remember daiquiri recipe: To make a daiquiri, to a cocktail shaker, add:
- 3 tablespoons Travellers Classic White Rum
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon simple syrup
That’s 3-2-1, got it? All you have to do is shake it up with some ice to chill it, then pour it into a cocktail glass and serve with a lime wedge.
Muddling is gently mashing herbs or fruits to release their juices. This technique is often used in cocktails because it helps the flavors incorporate better than if you just threw a mint sprig right into the drink.
- Fresh mint
- Lime juice
- Travellers Classic White Rum
- Simple syrup
- Soda water
Place the mint leaves in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. If you don’t have one, you can use a large metal cup or bowl. Using a wooden cocktail muddler or unfinished wooden spoon, gently mash the mint a few times to release the juices. Do not mash the mint with a lot of force.
Classic Piña Colada
The piña colada is a popular classic cocktail invented in Puerto Rico made with pineapple juice, rum, and coconut, served blended or with crushed ice.
This drink is on the list of International Bartender Association’s IBA official cocktails, which means it has an official definition. The piña colada ingredients are:
- 6 oz Travellers Classic White Rum
- 6 oz cream of coconut (not coconut cream)
- 6 oz pineapple juice
- 4 cups ice
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
Throw in a blender, and enjoy! Feeling cheeky? Add 4 ounces more of Travellers gold rum on top (it should float).
