On July 19, celebrate National Daquiri Day properly with Bacardí Superior. Ideal for mixing, Bacardí Superior is a white rum that shines in simple, citrus-forward cocktails like the daquiri. Aged for one or two years in American white oak barrels and run through a charcoal filter, Bacardí Superior is the smoothest rum around—the perfect date for your new favourite holiday.
2 ounces Bacardí Superior rum
1 ounce lime juice
1/3 ounce extra fine sugar
Place sugar and freshly pressed lime juice in a cocktail shaker and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Pour in the Bacardí Superior rum and fill the shaker with half-cubed ice, followed by some half-crushed ice.
Shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled.
Strain through a fine tea strainer into a chilled coupette.
