The El Floridita Daiquiri

Courtesy Manuel Carbajo Aguiar, cantinero, El Floridita, Havana

Compared to a traditional daiquiri, which would be strained into coupe glasses or served on the rocks, this slushy version is a refreshing change of pace. In general, cocktails in Cuba are less sweet than American-style drinks. You can add another half-tablespoon of sugar, if you prefer.


1 teaspoon Demerara sugar
1½ ounces white rum, like Havana Club 3 year
½ ounce lime juice
⅓ teaspoon maraschino liqueur
1 cup ice


Add all ingredients into a blender. Run for about 1 minute, or until slushy. Pour into martini glass. Serve with a straw.
