There is something so funny about the name Daiquiri that you almost want to laugh out loud when someone says it! But it sure doesn’t taste funny. The name is associated with a Cuban mining town where the drink was first fashioned.
A local mining engineer created it in 1898, and anyone who has got a thing for rums does remember him with gratitude.
● 2 oz rum
● 1 oz fresh lime juice, just squeezed
● ¾ oz demerara sugar syrup
● A lime slice for garnish
1. Take the rum, lime juice and demerara sugar syrup in a shaker.
2. Add ice and shake until it is well-chilled.
3. Drain the pale white mixture into a coupe glass.
4. Garnish it with a lime slice.
4. Aperol Spritz
A drink with a lesser percentage of alcoholic content meant to act as an aperitif, the Aperol Spritz, has a bittersweet taste and dark Italian playboy looks. Whip up this beauty on National Cocktail Day and imagine yourself transported to the Italian countryside with a basket of strawberries and limoncello. When the sunshine strikes a glass of Aperol Spritz, it’s sure to splinter into the warm hues of a Tuscan afternoon. Bask in the reminiscent glow.
● 3 oz prosecco
● 2 oz Aperol
● 1 oz club soda
● Orange slice to garnish and float
● Add the prosecco, club soda, and the Aperol to a glass filled with ice and stir.
● Add an orange slice to the drink and let it float lazily.
5. Dry Martini
Many people claim that they can make a dry martini, but we love the bartender who makes it just right! Initially, the recipe used to call for sweet vermouth, but now the taste has tipped towards dry. Follow these steps below and come up with a drink that’ll have you shaken, not stirred.

● Garnish with a lemon twist
1. To a mixing glass with ice, add gin, dry vermouth, and orange bitters.
2. Stir until the mixture is icy.
