Daiquiri di Pompelmo

A true daiquiri has very little in common with the saccharine, tropical-fruit-garnished behemoths of spring break bars around the globe.  The real deal gracefully balances rum, citrus and sugar and is NOT frozen.  This one is gussied up with grapefruit and elderflower, and trust me…it’s better than the imitation.
