Giovanni Martinez's daiquiri recipe
"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.
