National Daiquiri Day

When you think of a Daiquiri you typically think of yourself sitting on a beach, cocktail with a little umbrella in hand, bathing in the sun. However, A classic daiquiri in fact is a simple blend of lime juice, sugar and rum that is stirred vigorously and poured over cracked ice. This Cuban Cocktail was originally invented in 1898 in the mining towns of Daiquiri (hence the name), near Santiago Cuba, by an engineer Jennings Stockton Cox. Ernest Hemmingway is known as the one who popularized the daiquiri; a regular at Havana’s El Floridita bar, taking his daiquiris with minimal sugar and double the rum. One such Daiquiri fits in with our scene here at Drumbar; with our love for fine spirits, we honor Mr. Hemingway’s birthday today and his love for this classic cocktail, with a Hemingway Daiquiri at Drumbar.
