The clock reading 8:04 is optional. This drink can be made successfully any time of day.
You know how it is: one day you’re sitting around craving a classic daiquiri only to go to your liquor cabinet and realize you are missing the two most important ingredients: white rum and simple syrup.

Having recently begun to “get into” rum, I’ve been trying various rum cocktails when I get the chance. During a recent visit to Hilton Head, I ordered a Rum Runner with dinner.

I resolved to improve upon this when I returned home.
