National Daiquiri Day

Do you need a way to cool down? Celebrate National Daiquiri Day. Sometimes a refreshing, fruity alcoholic beverage is just what you need in a world full of difficulty and stress.

It may surprise some people to learn that Daiquiri, one of the oldest cocktails known, is still in use today! This refreshing drink was first created in 1898 by Jennings Stockton Cox, an American engineer, in Daiquiri, a small town near Santiago, Cuba.

Cox created this drink to help cool down during the hot summer months. It consists of lime juice, sugar, and Bacardi rum. This was his best option to increase the morale of miners during their long, hard work.

Cox’s drink was so popular that he received not only a generous stipend, but also a monthly gallon Bacardi to keep supplying the refreshing drink.

The story goes that the drink gained popularity when a US Navy officer tried it in 1909. He loved it so much, that he brought it back to Washington D.C., where it became more popular.

Although it may not have started with a small cocktail umbrella to refresh the miners, it definitely deserves one now!

National Daiquiri Day, which falls in the middle of hot summer, is the ideal time to celebrate and enjoy all things associated with this refreshing alcoholic beverage.

It doesn’t matter if you are at home or out, celebrating National Daiquiri Day is a lot of fun. These are some ideas to get you started:

Go to a local restaurant or bar with your friends and ask the bartender for a special drink in celebration of National Daiquiri Day. You might find drink specials or an exclusive happy hour offer to celebrate National Daiquiri Day.

A classic daiquiri only requires the most basic ingredients: Rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and standard simple syrup. You can either pour the liquid over ice and shake it, then serve it straight away or blend it with the ice. For color and flavor, garnish with a lime wedge.
