In current times the Daiquiri is a much-maligned drink, frequently served frozen, super sweet, sickly pink, and often accompanied by some sort of souvenir toy, like an alcoholic happy meal. A classic Daiquiri is a splendid thing, full of lime juice and rum, so manly a quaff that there is a version named after Hemingway. In this rustic French riff on the Daiquiri, Blanche Armagnac stands in for white rum.
- 1 1/2 ounces Blanche Armagnac
- 1 ounce fresh lime juice
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Shake and strain into a cocktail glass.
