The History of the Daiquiri: The daiquiri originated in Cuba, with its roots tracing back to the early 20th century. It was named after a beach near Santiago de Cuba called Daiquiri, where American engineer Jennings Cox reportedly mixed the first batch. The classic daiquiri recipe includes three simple ingredients: rum, lime juice, and sugar. Over time, variations incorporating different fruits and flavours have emerged, expanding the drink's popularity worldwide.

The Classic Daiquiri Recipe: Let's start with the timeless classic daiquiri recipe, which serves as the foundation for countless variations. Here's how to make it:


  • 2 oz white rum
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Add the white rum, fresh lime juice, and simple syrup to the shaker.
  3. Shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds to chill the ingredients.
