A Little Daiquiri History

The Daiquiri is thought to have been developed in the late 1800’s in Cuba. It was either created as a medicinal treatment or in a “There’s no whiskey or gin around here… time to doctor up the local rum” type of scenario. As is often the case in cocktails, we do not know for sure which is the truth and it is likely that both renditions have some element of the truth in them.

Probably the most famous Daiquiri lover was Ernest Hemingway, who also happens to have a variation named after him. The aptly named Hemingway Daiquiri adds grapefruit and maraschino to the mix and it is another fantastic drink.

  • Avocado daiquiriregular daiquiri with half an avocado.

Frozen daiquiri

A wide variety of alcoholic mixed drinks made with finely pulverized ice are often called frozen daiquirí. These drinks can also be combined and poured from a blender, eliminating the need for manual pulverization and producing a texture similar to a smoothie.

On larger scales, such drinks are often commercially made in larger machines, and come in a wide variety of flavors made with various alcohol or liquors.

 Another way to create a frozen daiquiri (mostly fruit-flavored variants) is by using frozen limeade, providing the required texture, sweetness and sourness all at once.

Variations on the frozen daiquiri include:

  • the old rose daiquiri, which features strawberry syrup and rum along with two teaspoons of sugar and lime juice
  • the daiquiri mulata featuring rum and coffee liqueur.
