The Friday Cocktail: Daiquiri

This cocktail comes in endless variations, but it all started with this classic one. Served all over the world, but perhaps most associated with Cuba and The Caribbean. Let's mix up this beauty and dream of sandy beaches and tropical nights.

Let us travel back in time to 1896, Cuba. A gentleman named Jennings Cox was at the time working within the mining industry. One hot tropical Caribbean night when he was entertaining some guests the gin ran out. In desperation, Jennings rushed to a nearby marketplace searching for any type of substitute not to ruin the evening.

His choice landed on white rum, which at the time was somewhat of a staple good on the Island. He returned to the party with the rum and mixed up the very first Daiquiri. Well, the drink was initially called rum sour, until Jennings decided it needed a much better name, and named it after a nearby beach; Daiquiri.


4.5 cl white rhum

2 cl lime juice or lemon

0.5 cl sugar syrup

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and stir well to dissolve the sugar, add ice and shake, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
