When the Guantanamo Naval Base was being established in the early days of the Republic, a group of officers were initiated into the secret of a cocktail made with the juice of green limes and Bacardi rum. It was immediately named Daiquiri, in honor of its birthplace, a little mining town nearby. Of course, the name is now famous worldwide. Here in the States, we're accustomed to a sweet cocktail, but this original is not. The best Daiquiri I ever had was at the El Floridita bar in Old Havana. Great memories!
