The classic Daiquiri is a super simple rum cocktail that’s well-balanced and refreshing, read on to learn how to make your own.
The drink became popular in the 1940's. World War II rationing made whisky and vodka hard to come by, yet because of U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Good Neighbour policy rum was easily obtainable because the policy opened up trade and travel relations with Latin America, Cuba and the Caribbean. The Good Neighbour policy, also known as the Pan-American program, helped make Latin America fashionable. Consequently, rum-based drinks (once frowned upon as being the choice of sailors and down-and-outs), also became fashionable, and the daiquiri saw a tremendous rise in popularity in the US.
The Daiquiri’s classic cocktail status was long established before the contemporary cocktail phase. It was one of six classic cocktails that was featured in David A. Embury’s 1948 seminal book on cocktails, “The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks.”
The combination of sweet, sour and spirit is refreshingly tangy and perfect for any occasion. To make yours you will need:
