The daiquiri cocktail This is another of those cocktails thats all over the map in the early years of its existence. The published recipes use limes, lemons, grenadine, cherry liqueur, orange liqueur. Some strain into a cocktail glass, some into a tall glass, some pour everything including the ice into a Manhattan glass - this last one probably gives rise to the Frozen Daiquiri found in the 1938 cocktail book Famous New Orleans Drinks (the frozen daiquiri is credited to La Florida Bar bartender Constantino Ribalaigua Vert - but it appears in none of his cocktail recipe books. Curious.)


Superfine sugar 1 Teaspoon
Rum 2 Ounce
Lime 1


Shake with cracked ice and serve in a Manhattan glass.
