The Daiquiri was supposedly invented in the year 1900 in a bar near the coal mine and also named local beach called 'Daiquiri', near Santiago, Cuba. Gaining it's popularity in a bar called 'El Foridita, in Havana... This is a simple mixture of light rum, sugar and lime juice. There are many, many variations! All kinds of flavors. In this video... I use a blender, but the original recipe calls for a highball glass full of crushed ice, one spoon of sugar on top... the juice of a fresh lime and a generous pour of rum on top of that. Then it was stirred by the guest with a long handled spoon... Picture a hazy, hot, slowwww day, out on the back porch...Cheers!
