If you saw the word daiquiri and pictured a florescent blended drink, you better think again. A traditional daiquiri consists of nothing more than simple syrup, lime juice, and rum, and it's served straight up. This delightful recipe expands on the idea by adding fresh raspberries to the mix. The resulting cocktail has a pretty color and refreshing taste. It's neither overly sweet nor too strong; it's perfectly balanced. The thing I love the most about this libation, though, is its name. Isn't it fun to say, la bomba daiquiri?! Just writing the words puts a smile on my face. To shake this up for your friends, get the recipe after the jump.

1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
