National Daiquiri Day

People from around the country drink their glasses with a rum-based cocktail and toast to National Daiquiri Day each year on July 19th. So, raise your glass and welcome all of the others in this commemoration!

Daiquiri is a family of cocktails whose key ingredients are rum, citrus juice (typically lime), and sugar.

It's likely that the Daiquiri came to be, with the Tasting of sunshine and beaches. During the Spanish-American War, men blasted away in the mines of a small community off the coast of Cuba in 1898. Jennings Cox, a one American engineer, supervised a mining operation located in a village named Daiquiri. Every day after work, Cox and his staff will dine at the Venus bar. In a tall glass of ice, Cox mixed up Bacardi, lime, and sugar in a single day. He named the new drink after the Daiquiri mines, and the drink became a hit in Havana quickly. Eventually, someone cut ice, and occasionally lemons or both lemons and limes were used.

Admiral Lucius W. Johnson, a US Navy medical officer, tried Cox's drink and later introduced it to the Army and Navy Club in Washington, D.C., in 1909.

Although the Daiquiri is often frozen, combining it in a blender eliminates the need for manual pulverization. Commercial machines produce a daiquiri with a texture similar to a smoothie, and they come in a variety of flavors as well. A daiquiri made from frozen limeade will have the desired texture, sweetness, and sourness all at once.
