VWWS-Boozy Cold Refreshing Rum Daiquiri

6 Ways to Drink Daiquiri

From strawberry to avocado, daiquiris come in various flavors, but the most basic and original is simply referred to as a classic daiquiri.

The original daiquiri is a three-ingredient drink that is easy to make. It’s also one of the most refreshing cocktails you can make and an essential rum drink for everyone to know and taste.

The classic daiquiri ingredients are composed of high-quality rum, freshly squeezed lime juice, and simple syrup made from scratch. The sweetness and tartness of a well-made daiquiri can be tweaked to suit your preferences.

Similarly to the martini and margarita, the daiquiri recipe has evolved into a subgenre of rum-based cocktails. There are many flavors to choose from, and they’re often mixed with ice.

Origin of the Classic Daiquiri 

During British Caribbean voyages in the 1780s, British sailors drank grog, a rum-and-citrus concoction, to avoid contracting scurvy.

Recently, it has been suggested that the daiquiri as we know it today originated in Cuba during the Spanish-American War in the early 1900s, when American engineer Jennings Cox was working at the Daiquiri mine. Cocktail glasses or martini glasses are the most common serving vessels for daiquiris, which were previously served over ice in frosted glasses or shaken and poured into chilled coupe glasses.

Due to the widespread use of rum among sailors, daiquiris were particularly popular in Navy bars and other establishments catering to the military community.
