Daiquiris are a style of drink served with rum, citrus juice, sugar and a flaouring ingredient.  The first daiquiris were reputed to have been created in Cuba using Bacardi Rum.  Intenational fame was aquired when it became known that Earnest Hemmingway  was a huge fan of this style of drink.

According to Wikipedia, The daiquirí is one of six most basic cocktails. These six cocktails are featured  in David A Embury's book  The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.

Sloe Lime Daiquiri
by Chip Dykstra (Aka @Arcticwolf)

A wonderfully cold daiquiri to sip in the sun on a hot day.

Sloe Lime Daiquiri 1 Ounce Dark Rum (I prefer Angostura Royal Oak)
1/2 Ounce Fresh Lime juice (sub Lime Cordial)
1 Tsp simple syrup (sub  Grenadine)
4 Large Ice Cubes
1 Chilled Glencairn Glass
1/2 Ounce Sloe Gin

Place the first 4 Ingredients in a Metal Martini Shaker.
Shake Until Martini Shaker Chills.
Strain Into a chilled Glencairn Glass.
Add the Ice from the Martini Shaker.
Float the Sloe Gin on the top and let everything sit for one minute.
Garnish with Lime Slice if desired….. Enjoy!! 

I  will sometimes use grenadine and Roses Lime Cordial when  sugar syrup and Lime Juice are not available.
