    smart man... sugar would have increased alcohol going into the bloodstream. I really can't imagine him drinking daiquiris. doesn't fit my image of him

    Just made one. Yes quite tart, yet interestingly so. Reminds me of so many other Pre-Prohibition "sours". Were the limes back then as tart as they are now; or am I the one buying sour limes.

    Either way, it is a nice drink on a hot day as it is today in Northern Virginia (92, feels like 106 with 61% humidity!).
