The daiquiri was one of Ernest Hemingway's favorite drinks. He even had his own recipe for the perfect daiquiri, which he called "the Papa Doble."
History of the drink
The Daiquiri is a classic blend of rum, lime juice and sugar. Its name comes from its place of origin- Daiquiri, Cuba, where it was apparently created by an American mining engineer named Jennings Cox in 1898, before making its way over to the U.S. The drink became popular in the 1940s when World War II rationing affected whisky and vodka, yet rum remained easily obtainable due to trade relations with Latin America. Originally, this cocktail was served in a tall glass packed with cracked ice, which evolved to shaved ice poured into a chilled coupe glass, to form the version we use today.
