Summer in Florida has been hot, and moving to Florida has been stressful. Lesley and I have had to buy a lot of odds and ends since we moved to Jacksonville, but the item that has been most beneficial has been the pour spout on our new blender. Frozen drinks that once ran and spilled all over the counter are now easily distributed to friends and family, but mostly just us. We have been experimenting with various concoctions, but we have always returned to our girl friday the Daiquiri. Here is our recipe for a Key Lime Daiqiuri:
All amounts are approximate. We just use the bottle of key lime juice – far too much work to squeeze those tiny limes. I think I might use a little more lime juice than listed, but start with less and add to taste. Same with the simple syrup.
- 1 cup of white rum
- 1/2 cup simple syrup
- 1/4 – 1/2 cup key lime juice
- 1/2 cup of water
- fill the rest of the blender with ice
- blend away
