Recipe: Giovanni Martinez's daiquiri

Giovanni Martinez's daiquiri recipe

Total time: 8 minutes

Servings: 1

Note: "It sounds terribly boring, but there's nothing like a good daiquiri," says Martinez, the head bartender at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood. His only change from the classic formula is to use slightly sweeter Key lime juice.

2 ounces light rum

3/4 ounces Key lime juice

1 tablespoon sugar

In a cocktail shaker, combine the rum, Key lime juice and sugar. Add ice and shake vigorously, so that it's aerated. Strain and serve in a cocktail glass garnished with a lime wheel.
