The daiquiri was created at the end of 1800 by Jennings Stockton Cox, an American engineer who was working with his team at an iron mine in Cuba during the American-Spanish War. Cox created the mixture with what he had in hand: white rum, lime, and sugar. The result was incredibly delicious and they kept drinking it, deciding to give it the name of the area where the mine was located: Daiquirí.
Refreshing and tangy, this is ideal on a warm tropical day.
