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.

Recipe:
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.
