Whenever I think of Daiquiris the 80’s come to mind. Maybe it’s something about the frozen kind that strikes me as being from that era? Are those marathons of I love the 80’s to blame? Truly no idea.

As seemingly retro as they may be though, one thing is for sure — when made with freshly squeezed lime juice and agave nectar this rummy cocktail is rather delicious and very refreshing, with just enough tang. I’ll drink to that.


Preparation Time: 1 minute

Makes: 1 cocktail


  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons or 43 grams) white rum
  • 3/4 ounce (1 1/2 tablespoons or 21 grams) lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon or 14 grams) water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons (10 grams) light agave nectar
  • Ice


In a cocktail shaker or Mason jar, combine rum through agave. Add a few ice cubes, cover and shake until very well mixed and chilled. Strain into a glass, add a few more cubes of ice and serve.
