Default Bacardi Daiquiri

In September I was at the Bacardi hosted Daiquiri 100th Anniversary party at the astonishing Marble Bar in Sydney enjoying the finest Daiquiris I've ever had. The best one was made by David Cordoba, the global brand ambassador of Bacardi. It was the most balanced Daiquiri I've ever had, even the colour was different when comparing it side by side to other Daiquiris!

Here is my final report of the event.

Thanks for sharing your experience. I've had some good daiquiris and others that were memorable for other reasons. I look forward to comparing notes in the future.

Usually the Daiquiris I get are way too sour. Funnily enough I've never had one that is too sweet.

I am often left with a heartburn after drinking a couple of Daiquiris that are made too sour. I guess most bartenders use too much lime juice and perhaps there is a lack of dilution from the ice in the shaker.

It is such a simple drink but so easy to get wrong.

Count Silvio,

I have been unhappy with every daiquiri I have made (using a number of different white rums). Usually, too strong and too sour. Do you recommend pouring the entire contents of the shaker into the glass, rather than straining it, in order to get slightly more dilution?

I guess experimentation is the key here to getting it right. I always double strain.

Maybe you can use half the lime you're typically using in your drinks and cutting back on the booze a little bit.

Like a Mai Tai, experimenting with various rums to get the right combo. Some of the rums for a classic daiquiri that I particularly enjoy are Oronoco, Cockspur 12, Mt. Gay Sugar Cane, and almost any Havana Club (especially the Havana Club Barrel Proof when I can get it).

If getting the lime right is a problem, avoid the temptation to fresh squeeze into your shaker. Best to squeeze enough limes ahead of time for a few drinks and carefully measure how much you add to your drink.

Also, shake it well. Lazy or half heated shaking simply does not give the drink enough melt for proper dilution. If all your ingredients and measures are by the book, a better shake will make a huge difference.
