A true daiquiri, not the bastardized frozen version, is comprised of nothing but sugar, rum, and lime and it is one of the simplest but most polished classic cocktails. This alternate version uses simple syrup instead of sugar and also adds in some Pickle Brine. Delicious.
2 oz Don Q Silver Rum
1 oz Simple Syrup
.5 oz Lime Juice
.5 oz Pickle Brine from any jar of The Real Dill pickles (we prefer Habanero Horseradish Dills)
Combine all ingredients and shake with ice vigorously. Strain into a glass and garnish with lime.
