BLAC Happy Hour Classics: The Daiquiri Cocktail

The daiquiri is a classic rum sour drink, and—much like the martini and margarita—it has also developed into a subfamily of BLAC Happy Hour classic drinks. Many variations take on a variety of flavors, and it's often blended with ice, as well.

The original daiquiri is a super simple recipe that requires just three common ingredients. It is also one of the freshest drinks you can make and an essential rum cocktail everyone should know and love to taste. And for the best daiquiri, use quality ingredients, including premium rum, fresh lime juice, and homemade simple syrup. BLAC added Equiano Light rum, a black-owned award-winning rum with a refreshingly unique lightly aged molasses rum from the Caribbean, fused with fresh sugar cane juice rum from Africa.

A well-made daiquiri should have a nice balance of sweet and sour and can be adjusted to your personal taste. Once you find your ideal mix, you will become a believer that those sugary-tart bottled daiquiris have no place in the bar.
