Classic Daiquiri

Posted by Callies Biscuits on

Nothing like a little friendly competition to make me go the extra mile! Last weekend we had a little fun with a drink contest since we had that extra day to play. My husband and I submitted this peach daiquiri and I am happy to report we won! This is not your typical frozen drink, it is beautifully presented and easy to make. It takes the meaning of a daiquiri to a whole different level, more refined, less beach bash and more sophisticated cocktail worthy! Don't forget to use your best cocktail glass and pressed linens to serve! Try it and challenge your friends to a Daq OFF soon!

    - 1/2 ounce simple syrup - 3/4 ounce lime juice - 2 1/2 ounces of good quality rum - 1/4 peach, peeled and sliced - 5 sprigs of mint
