The cocktail experts at the Drugstore Social said: "This is a perfectly balanced recipe for the Classic Daiquiri. The use of Caster Sugar rather than Sugar Syrup gives the drink a wonderful, almost sherbet-like texture.

"The addition of water is optional, but recommended if you're using ice straight from the freezer that is 'dry'."


• 50ml Bacardi Carta Blanca

• 1 Heaped Teaspoon of Caster Sugar

• 10ml Chilled Water

• 25ml Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice


Put the lime juice, water and caster sugar into a shaker (or jam jar if you don't have one) and stir to dissolve the sugar.
