Key Lime Pie Daiquiri FAQs

What type of rum should I use in my daiquiri cocktail?

You can use any rum to make your Daiquiri, depending on the taste you are going for. 

The most common types of rum used are light rum, dark rum, and gold rum. Each type of rum has its own unique flavor that will give your daiquiri a different taste.

What is the difference between a daiquiri and a mojito?

Although both cocktails originated in Cuba, that is where the similarities end.

A daiquiri contains rum, lime juice, and sugar. A mojito, on the other hand, contains rum, mint leaves, lime juice, sugar, and sparkling water.

Both drinks are refreshing and have a similar taste.

Do you have to use fresh lime juice?

No, you do not have to use fresh lime juice when making a daiquiri cocktail.

However, using fresh lime juice will give your drink a more flavorful and refreshing taste.

If you do not have access to fresh limes, you can use bottled lime juice instead.

What type of Sweetener should I use?

Granulated sugar and simple syrup are the most popular ways to sweeten up a daiquiri. 

Plain white sugar is your easiest option as you can buy it at the grocery store. 

Simple syrup is a mixture of sugar and water. You can easily make your own batch using your stove at home. 

I use agave nectar because it will give your drink a smoother taste with a caramel finish.
