The Classic Daiquiri- Mardi Gras

Updated: Oct 4, 2023

You are 4 simple ingredients away from a Goldilocks daiquiri! The classic daiquiri is one of the most popular drinks to make for Mardi Gras. I have tried many recipes looking for the perfect balance and I think mine is the Goldilocks of all daiquiris, every ingredient is just right. Not too fruity, not too boozy!

These are quick to mix up, don't blink or you just might miss it.

Total Time: 3-5 minutes

Yields: 1 servings

The recipe below makes one serving, this makes it easy for you to multiply or just make for yourself.


2 oz white rum

1 oz lime juice

1 oz simple syrup

1 cup ice

Note: You can also throw in 1 whole banana, or 1 cup frozen mango, or 1/2 (10oz) bag of frozen strawberries to make a deliciously fruit flavored daiquiri too. The measurements for the fruit are for one glass as well.


Put 2 oz white rum, 1 oz lime juice, 1 oz simple syrup, and 1 cup of ice in a blender. Give it a few pulses, or to the consistency that you like, and serve in a glass.

Garnish with lime or fruit of your liking, or let’s be honest with whatever is in the fridge. Strawberry for me!

Have fun, y’all!
