View Full Version : lime daiquiri help
07-02-2004, 06:04 PM
Made a lime daiquiri tonite. It was lousy!! 1/2 lime, equal amount of rum, 1 teaspoon sugar. Someone out there must have a great recipe. I have a bag of limes, it's hot here, and a nice cool, delicious, refreshing daiquiri would hit the spot.

I found these on allrecipes.com (both serve 4). I think you probably needed more sugar??
1 cup ice
1 cup light rum
1/2 (6 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate
1 cup carbonated water
1 In a blender, combine ice, rum, limeade concentrate and carbonated water. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.
3 limes, juiced
1/2 cup white sugar
10 fluid ounces white rum
4 maraschino cherries
6 cups ice cubes
1 In a blender combine lime juice, sugar and rum. Blend and add ice one cube at a time until mixture is thick and smooth. Pour into 4 glasses and garnish with maraschino cherries.

Something I used as a bartender was simple syrup to sweeten my lime daqs.
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
Bring to low boil and cook untill the thickness of honey.
This dissolves better than granulated sugar.
1 jigger of rum
juice of 1 lime
1/2 jigger of simple syrup
Shake well with ice and strain
OR put in blender with ice and crush.
Added touch - run a lime wedge around the rim of the glass and then dip the rim in superfine (Bakers) sugar.
Think it is time for a cocktail!!!
jigger = 1.5 oz :cool:

I'm SO glad you asked! One of our all-time favorite drinks around here is one I clipped out of BA years ago:
2 parts rum
1 part fresh lime juice
1 part pure maple syrup
Option one: Serve shaken with ice, over ice, or chilled.
Option two: Serve warmed (wonderful in winter) in Irish Coffee Glasses
Option three: (In the original recipe) Walk out on the porch, snap off an icicle, and use it to stir.
This is REALLY good!
