Featuring a new cocktail, its recipe and a brief history of the popular drink!

February 28, 2020 featured cocktail...

Directions:

Pour ice and water in a tall daiquiri serving glass.  Set aside.  Put 1/4 cup of sugar on a small plate.  Set aside.  Pour ingredients into a blender: light rum, 1/2 cup of berries, lime juice and ice (ice should come up no further than the top of the other ingredients in order to avoid a watery drink).  Blend for 1-2  minutes until completely smooth. Cut a slit in the strawberry, pour out water in serving glass, turn glass over and dip the top rim in sugar.   Pour ingredients in the serving glass and garnish with berry.

Non-Alcoholic

Keep the above recipe but substitute pineapple or berry juice for rum.

History

While many people believe the drink was created by a Cuban since it's named after a beach in Santiago Cuba; it was actually created in the early 1900's by Jenning's Cox, an American engineer.  There are multiple versions of the original daiquiri recipe, but none actually included strawberries.   Part of the popularity for this drink in the early turn of the century was that it included Carta Blanca Rum (Cuban aged and filtered) which was new at the time of it's debut.  This drink was popular with well known Americans like: Ernest Hemingway, Fredo Corleone, John F. Kennedy.  While the later versions now include strawberries and are blended instead of being served over ice; the daiquiri has stayed pretty true to the original recipes.  

Next featured cocktail is the Cuba Libre!

Last featured cocktail was the Mai Tai!

As always drink responsibly or try the non-alcoholic versions!
