Backstory:

Now, this one is confusing. The Daiquiri itself is not actually one individual cocktail. Despite originating as rum, lime and sugar, throughout the years, there have been so many variations created that it has become a ‘group’ of cocktails. So to be technical, a Daiquiri consists of rum, citrus (or other fruits), and sugar.

 

Rum has so much more to offer this world than an appearance in the humble rum and coke. We one of the classics spirits with so much hidden flavour, so much hidden character, and consistently drowning it in syrupy sweetness is not always the right way to go.

 

Breaking down this cocktail itself, we can see that there is not many steps. It's so simple, it's genius. The misunderstood beauty of rum, paired with sugar to dilute the bite of the spirit, creates a deviously unique flavour profile. What are we left with? Exactly. The traditional lime addition zests up the flavour of the rum to the right amount, whilst at the same time bringing its own unique flavours to the floor. You could literally choose any one of the multiple options possible, and they will all add to the rum with a unique touch, such is the brilliance and versatility of the spirit.

The first distillation of rum took place in the Caribbean, in 17th century, finally putting an abundance of sugarcane fields to good use. The spirit, fuelled by its unique flavour and seer touch, found its popularity to North America, where, on average, every single living soul (men and women of all ages) drank 3 gallons (14 l) of rum, every year. This popularity meant the spirit was valuable enough to be considered currency in some parts of Europe, and also led to George Washington (the first) insisting on a barrel of this Barbados-made stunner at his inauguration.

 

A favourite of another man in the presidential line-up, J.F.K, the Daiquiri was supposedly invented in the early 1900’s by a man named Jennings Cox whilst working as a mining engineer at the Daiquiri iron Mine, in Cuba. I think we all know where it got its name, then.
