Bacardi Daiquiri Recipe FAQs

How to Make Simple Syrup for Cocktails

To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a medium sauce pan. Heat until boiling, and boil 3-4 minutes, until sugar is dissolved.

What if I don’t have white rum?

Any light rum will work. If you want to stick to Bacardi, try Bacardi Gold, or from their flavors line, Bacardi Lime or any other flavor that sounds delicious to you! A dark rum will also work! Dark rums are pretty close to light rum, they’ve just been aged a bit, giving a stronger flavor. Spiced rum I don’t really recommend, just because you will completely change the taste of the drink.

Can I make this on the rocks instead of blended?

Yes! Skip the blender by adding all of the ingredients- you can cut the ice cubes down to 1 cup, to a cocktail shaker, and shaking until well combined and chilled. Pour over ice in your favorite cocktail glass!

What type of glass do I serve a daiquiri in?

We prefer to serve daiquiris in a Margarita glass, or fun little Coupe glasses, like we did in these photos. They’re also often served in Tulip glasses, like our frozen strawberry banana daiquiri, or even in martini glasses! There are so many great cocktail glasses to choose from, and really you can use whatever you prefer or have on hand!

Why Bacardi?

We love Bacardi in our rum cocktails. It is easy to find just about anywhere locally, it is easy on the budget, and it offers great taste and a lot of flexibility on the flavor. It won’t overwhelm your drinks, and is excellent for mixing! Bacardi originated in Santiago de Cuba, and is made in Puerto Rico. It is a great middle of the road Rum choice.
