I would like to share with you about one of my favorite cocktails! The daiquiri is one of the world’s most popular drinks. Many people only know the frozen variation and have a limited concept of what the drink really is. The daiquiri is excellent and delectable when made correctly in its original version. Its origins begin with two American friends who worked in Cuban mines. Tired of always drinking the same gin, the miners decided to create a different drink with some of the Caribbean island’s excellent products. That’s how it got its daiquiri name, after the city where it was created, located southwest of Santiago de Cuba. The cocktail then became popular at “El Floridita” bar. It only started becoming popular internationally in the early 20th century.
