Hemingway's Cocktail: the Daiquiri 5 Ways

August 4, 2011

Trust Cuba to create two classic summer cocktails: the Mojito and the Daiquiri. Both involve rum, simple syrup and lime -- so what exactly is the difference? A Mojito is muddled with mint and served in a highball and a Daiquiri, my latest summer obsession!, is served in a cocktail glass and only requires muddling with the addition of fresh fruit - yum!
