  • Daiquiris get a Chicago makeover

    Daiquiris get a Chicago makeover
    Think back to the last time you wore a plastic lei—on spring break or a cruise ship, perhaps? Chances are, you also were drinking a frozen pink daiquiri with enough sugar to make you twitch. The daiquiri, which historically was a three-ingredient mix of rum, lime juice and sugar, has lost sight over the last few decades of its roots as a simple, sweet-tart refresher. But a recent trend toward pared-down, fewer-ingredient cocktails means more Chicago bartenders are rediscovering the tropical drink's origins. "In America, you think of a daiquiri and you think of a slushie machine. It was kind of bastardized in the '80s by Chili's and TGI Fridays," said Justin Anderson, beverage manager at Fulton Market's South American-inspired restaurant La Sirena Clandestina. "But really, you can have very simple ingredients and make a great daiquiri." Though they're ditching sugar-loaded mixes in favor of fresh limes and high-quality rum, bars aren't all serving up the same riff on the drink. From classic presentations to habanero- and watermelon-flavored versions, allow the daiquiri to reintroduce itself. kbernot@tribune.com | @redeyeeatdrink
