Daiquiri Cocktail


A Daiquiri Cocktail! A rum-based drink built with sugar syrup, lime juice, and egg white.

Daiquiri Cocktail History!

It is hard to prove the origin of any drink, but all across the world, people agree that Jennings Stockton Cox is the creator of the Daiquiri Cocktail recipe. Jennings, an engineer from the USA, arrived at the Daiquiri mines shortly after the American-Spanish War. Roosevelt started to explore the iron mines of Cuba after the Americans defeated the Spanish. Jennings Cox led one of the first exploration parties. The one who took over the mine in Daiquiri.

During that time, American expatriates were given huge salaries. Monthly rations of cigarettes and rum from the local area. The Cuban workers mixed some of their Bacardi Blanca with sugar cane juice and coffee. Jennings was intrigued by this and began to experiment.

It is unclear what the story behind the first Daiquiri was. Jennings Cox's granddaughter claims that Jennings ran out of gin when guests were visiting. He made a cocktail with what he had: sugar, lime juice, and rum.

the original recipe is also available in handwritten form, declaring that it will use 6 lemons, 6 cups Bacardi Blanca, 6 teaspoons sugar, six cups of mineral water, and loads of crushed Ice. The Daiquiri recipe remained in Cuba for a time after this event. One, because Daiquiri was a city that fought the plague. Another cocktail was also invented in Cuba at almost the same time. It took America by storm. As you might guess, I am referring to the Cuba Libre.
