Daiquiri Cocktail (Serves 1)
I thought it was about time that I shared this classic cocktail. There are many ‘daiquiri twists’, but this is the original recipe. It’s simply a mix of white rum, lime juice and sugar syrup – a crisp, light and refreshing cocktail perfect for any occasion…
50ml white rum (such as Bicardi Carta Blanca)
15ml freshly squeezed lime juice
10ml sugar syrup
Slice of lime to garnish (optional)
- Simply add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker, add a handful of rum and shake until the mixture is well chilled, 15-20 seconds.
- Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a slice of lime.

Cooking has always been something I have enjoyed, I have an extensive collection of cookbooks, some are well thumbed whilst others collect dust on the shelves; I can’t bear to get rid of any cook book, just in case one day I might use it for that one obscure recipe - light on a rainy day!
I love eating out, finding new flavours, whether it’s just a local haunt or a ‘dress up’ to dinner restaurant, food is my hobby. In my opinion food is the one of the most important pieces of knowledge you need to know about any culture in order to really understand it, so when we go away, it’s not the local sights that I’m googling but the best place to eat!
I am not one of those fortunate cooks who can throw something together by looking at the contents of their fridge, I need a plan to work with, then I organise my fridge around the recipe. I am however a very organised person, you might even call me a control freak! I love the orderly fashion of a recipe, I finding it soothing to have a plan in front of me, so the thought of trawling through my recipe books and trying new recipes is my idea of a perfect afternoon. But I realise that this is not everyones idea of fun, hence the birth of this blog. This blog is essentially for people who love food but don’t have the time, patience or energy search through cook books to find that winning recipe – that’s my job, the Menu Mistress!
