Frozen Daiquiri

Makes1 drink
June 1945
The idea of making a frozen daiquiri without a blender is daunting. Happily most of us are among the fortunate who own one of those newfangled devices and can limit our arm workouts to the gym.

To 3 ounces good rum add 1 ounce lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon fine granulated sugar, and 3 drops—or more—white maraschino liqueur. Add 1 1/2 cups finely cracked ice, about the size of peas, but not snow ice, and shake. If you are fortunate enough to possess a Waring Blendor, use it instead of an overdose of elbow grease.
