Social and Cocktail says:

The classic daiquiri is actually a simple drink to prepare, using just three ingredients. Sweet and tart, this is still one of the best concoctions you can make.

Did You Know?

Due to Roosevelt`s Good Neighbour policy (which opened up trade with Cuba, Latin America and the Carribean) rum became easily obtainable in the 1940S and this helped drive the popularity of the daiquiri in the US.

    … just in time for freezers and ice makers to be common place in bars. That is why the daquiri has ice in it at all. The original Daquiri had NO ICE. As a matter of fact, the drink is eons old and has been being consumed in Cuba since about a week after the first batch of rum came out of the rack house. At that time, if you had told a Cuban that water freezes, it is my opinion that he would have laughed at you!

    I will say that this young man has made a very traditional and high quality beverage.
