Daiquiri Cocktail Recipe - A tropical taste with a fine balance of sweet & sour
Cue the Rumba and let’s take a trip to Cuba. A teasingly tropical taste that’s sure to lift the spirits and get the party started. Said to be invented in Cuba in the early 1900s by an American mining engineer named Jennings Cox. It was soon exported to Washington and New York where it became a hit with the clubbing elite. Daiquiri became popular in 1940 due to the rationing of Whiskey and Vodka during World War II.
The daiquiri is definitely tropical but shouldn’t be too sweet as sour from the lime is tamed by the sugar. A great daiquiri should be a fine balance of sweet and sour, play around with the quantities to find your daiquiri sweet spot.
