BOOZE: New on our cocktail menu: The JFK Daiquiri

Made just the way JFK drank them, with equal parts Bacardi Light, freshly squeezed lime juice and simple syrup served up. It's bracing classic.

 “If one needs an example of how to drink a proper daiquiri, one need only go back to the 1960s. On the night he was elected president in 1960, John F. Kennedy sat sipping daiquiris in the dining room of his house in Hyannisport, Massachusetts. When dinner was over, Kennedy rose and walked to a nearby room to watch a small television with bad reception. Here, he checked in on the election returns, and here—infused with the glow of a daiquiri—he learned he would be the next inhabitant of the White House.”
