My daiquiri

Lynnda Cloutier


You may not normally sweeten cocktails, but you may find that when it comes to rum, a little sugar, especially when lime juice is present, nicely balances the flavor. This best-known of rum drinks is generally attributed to one Jennings Cox, a mining engineer stationed in Santiago, Cuba, in the sizzling summer of 1898. While he may have originally concocted it to fight a malarial infection and scurvy, a properly made daiquiri these days is not, in the strict sense, medicinal. This semi-classic version is potent and more than a little reminiscent of a margarita. source unknown
