Compared to a traditional daiquiri, which would be strained into coupe glasses or served on the rocks, this slushy version is a refreshing change of pace. In general, cocktails in Cuba are less sweet than American-style drinks. You can add another half-tablespoon of sugar, if you prefer.
Add all ingredients into a blender. Run for about 1 minute, or until slushy. Pour into martini glass. Serve with a straw.
