Derby Daiquiri

I don't like blender drinks. Too loud, too much cleanup, too cold on the palate. A cocktail shouldn't give one a brainfreeze.

So although this drink is tasty, it's not really worth the effort. Especially obtaining "shaved ice", which is another level of labor I'm not willing to provide.

1.5 oz Light rum (Bacardi Silver)
1 oz OJ
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp sugar

Blend with 1/2 cup shaved ice. Pour into a champagne flute.

By the way, the nasturtium garnish was my own idea. Although it's very pretty, the peppery aroma doesn't really work, so I'd recommend a fruity garnish instead. The recipe doesn't call for a garnish, but for goodness sake, it's a blended daiquiri! At least add a paper umbrella.
