The classic Strawberry Daiquiri
When it comes to cocktails, the list of recipes and flavours one can divulge into is endless – however, the Strawberry Daiquiri stands out with wonderful aesthetics and flavorsome vibe.
The citrusy goodness of the Daiquiri was even ranked in David A. Embury's classic 'The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks' as one of the six basic drinks
The Origins of the Daiquiri Cocktail
When glancing into the history of this drink, it's genesis is often disputed. Yet, one story has been narrated by the granddaughter of perhaps the creator of the Daiquiri cocktail – Jennings Stockton Cox.
Her story is as follows: one day, some Americans arrived at the abode of her grandfather as guests. Since he did not wish to offer them dry rum – the only drink he had – he scourged around the house finding what ingredients he could and just happened to produce something wonderful – the famous Daiquiri Cocktail.
Daiquiris were typically made up of rum, citrus juice, and any other sweetener- mostly fruit syrups.
The original Daiquiri cocktail contained sugar, lime and Cuban rum. It eventually gained huge popularity; however, it did not stop there. There was a lot of experimenting, leading to a diversity in flavors – which is how the awesome Strawberry Daiquiri came into existence.
This citrusy goodness of the Daiquiris was even ranked in David A. Embury's classic “The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks” as one of the six basic drinks.
