Pineapple Daiquiri Ingredients
50ml Barry Island Rum
25ml Pineapple Juice

Ice (for shaking)

How to make our Pineapple Daiquiri
Making our Pineapple Daiquiri is easy. First, Load a cocktail shaker with Ice. You want your shaker to be around half full of ice, this is because you need to enough ice to cool your cocktail but you don't want the ice to melt. the more ice you have the less it's likely to melt and it'll get your drink colder faster.
Then measure and pour in 50ml of Barry Island Spiced Rum, 25ml of pineapple juice, 20ml of lime juice and 15ml simple syrup. If you don't have simple syrup, you can make your own by combining equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar has dissolved, then let cool before using.
Put the lid on your cocktail shaker and give the shaker a really good shake. The secret to getting a lovely foam on the top of this cocktail is getting lots of tiny air bubbles into the liquid. You want to hard shake the cocktail for around 5 seconds.
Next, you're going to strain the drink into your glass. We love a classic and elegant Nick and Nora glass.
If you're using a small glass like a Nick and Nora and you don't intend serving your drink over ice then we recommend double straining the liquid. A double strain is where you pour your cocktail through a strainer on your cocktail shaker as well as through another filer like a small sieve. This will remove any tiny ice particles from your drink.
This drink is just at home being served over ice in a tumbler or hi-ball. If that's how you'd like to serve your cocktail then you don't need to worry about double straining the liquid.
Finally garnish with a twist of lime peel.
The daiquiri is a classic cocktail that is believed to have originated in Cuba in the late 19th century. The drink is made with rum, lime juice, and sugar, and it is typically served in a stemmed glass.
There are several different stories about the origin of the daiquiri. One story is that the drink was invented by Jennings Cox, an American mining engineer who was working in Cuba at the time. Cox was reportedly out of gin and decided to substitute rum in a gin punch he was making. He added lime juice and sugar to the mix, and the daiquiri was born.
Another story is that the daiquiri was invented by a group of American engineers who were working in Cuba. The engineers were reportedly looking for a refreshing drink to cool down with during the hot Cuban summers. They experimented with different combinations of rum, lime juice, and sugar, and they eventually came up with the daiquiri.
No matter who invented it, the daiquiri quickly became popular in Cuba. It was also popular among American tourists who visited Cuba. The daiquiri eventually made its way to the United States, and it has been a popular cocktail around the world ever since.
The daiquiri is a simple but delicious cocktail. The tartness of the lime juice and the sweetness of the sugar balance out the taste of the rum. The daiquiri is also a versatile cocktail. It can be made with different types of rum, and it can be made with different types of fruit juice. Some popular variations include the strawberry daiquiri, the mango daiquiri, and the pineapple daiquiri.
If you are looking for a refreshing and delicious cocktail, the daiquiri is a great option. It is sure to please everyone who tries it.
